Verse 1
        D                        Em  D/F# G
How deep the Father’s love for us, 
D/F#           D/A    A
how vast beyond all measure 
D                      Em  D/F# G
that He should give His on - ly Son
D/F#                    A    D
to make a wretch His treasure.
Em  D/F# G
How great the pain of sear - ing loss.
D/F#                Bm    A
The Father turns His face away 
Em  D/F# G
as wounds which mar the Cho - sen One 
D/F#              A     D       G/B       D/A  D    G2
bring many sons to glo - ry.

Verse 2
 D                     Em  D/F#  G
Behold the Man upon the cross, 
D/F#           D/A    A
my sin upon His shoul - ders.
D                              Em  D/F#    G
Ashamed, I hear my mock - ing voice
D/F#                A     D
call out among the scoffers.
Em  D/F#    G
It was my sin that held Him there
D/F#        Bm        A
until it was accom - plished;
D                      Em     D/F#  G
His dying breath has brought me life.
D/F#               A    D        G/B      D/A       D      G2
I know that it is fin - ished.

Verse 3
 D                      Em D/F#  G
I will not boast in an -y - thing: 
D/F#                           D/A    A
no gifts, no pow’r, no wis - dom.
D                   Em  D/F#    G
But I will boast in Je - sus Christ:
D/F#            A    D
His death and resurrection.
Em  D/F#    G
Why should I gain from His reward?
D/F#             Bm       A
I cannot give an an - swer.
D                  Em  D/F#    G
But this I know with all my heart:
D/F#                        A    D
His wounds have paid my ransom.
