How Deep the Father's Love For Us

How deep the Father's love for us

How vast beyond all measure

That He should give His only Son

To make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss

The Father turns His face away

As wounds which mar the Chosen One

Bring many sons to glory

Behold the man upon a cross

My sin upon His shoulders

Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice

Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there

Until it was accomplished

His dying breath has brought me life

I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything

No gifts, no power, no wisdom

But I will boast in Jesus Christ

His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward?

I cannot give an answer

But this I know with all my heart

His wounds have paid my ransom

And Can It Be That I Should Gain

And can it be that I should gain

An int’rest in the Savior’s blood

Died He for me, who caused His pain

For me, who Him to death pursued

Amazing love! how can it be

That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me

Amazing love! how can it be

That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me

’Tis mystery all! The Immortal dies

Who can explore His strange design

In vain the firstborn seraph tries

To sound the depths of love Divine

’Tis mercy all! let earth adore

Let angel minds inquire no more

’Tis mercy all! let earth adore

Let angel minds inquire no more

He left His Father’s throne above

So free, so infinite His grace

Emptied Himself of all but love

And bled for Adam’s helpless race

’Tis mercy all, immense and free

For, O my God, it found out me

’Tis mercy all, immense and free

For, O my God, it found out me

Long my imprisoned spirit lay

Fast bound in sin and nature’s night

Thine eye diffused a quickening ray

I woke, the dungeon flamed with light

My chains fell off, my heart was free

I rose, went forth, and followed Thee

My chains fell off, my heart was free

I rose, went forth, and followed Thee

No condemnation now I dread

Jesus, and all in Him, is mine

Alive in Him, my living Head

And clothed in righteousness Divine

Bold I approach the eternal throne

And claim the crown, through Christ my own

Bold I approach the eternal throne

And claim the crown, through Christ my own

Cornerstone

My hope is built on nothing less

Than Jesus blood and righteousness

I dare not trust the sweetest frame

But wholly trust in Jesus name

Christ alone, Cornerstone

Weak made strong in the Saviour's love

Through the storm, He is Lord, Lord of all

When darkness seems to hide His face

I rest on His unchanging grace

In every high and stormy gale

My anchor holds within the veil

Christ alone, Cornerstone

Weak made strong in the Saviour's love

Through the storm, He is Lord, Lord of all

When He shall come with trumpet sound

Oh may I then in Him be found

Dressed in His righteousness alone

Faultless to stand before the throne

Christ alone, Cornerstone

Weak made strong in the Saviour's love

Through the storm, He is Lord, Lord of all

Take My Life And Let It Be

Take my life and let it be

consecrated, Lord, to thee.

Take my moments and my days;

let them flow in endless praise,

let them flow in endless praise.

Take my hands and let them move

at the impulse of thy love.

Take my feet and let them be

swift and beautiful for thee,

swift and beautiful for thee.

Take my voice and let me sing

always, only, for my King.

Take my lips and let them be

filled with messages from thee,

filled with messages from thee.

Take my silver and my gold;

not a mite would I withhold.

Take my intellect and use

every power as thou shalt choose,

every power as thou shalt choose.

Take my will and make it thine;

it shall be no longer mine.

Take my heart it is thine own;

it shall be thy royal throne,

it shall be thy royal throne.

Take my love; my Lord, I pour

at thy feet its treasure store.

Take myself, and I will be

ever, only, all for thee,

ever, only, all for thee.
