how deep the father’s love for us

There’s something about a good song that gets me right in the heart. You know what I mean? The words and the music intertwine to create this powerful message that digs deep.

I felt that way about Stuart Townend’s “How Deep the Father’s Love for Us” when I listened to it again last week. The words are amazing, written from the viewpoint of what it cost God to send His cherished Son to the cross for you and for me.

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

Hearing how Townend came up with the tune and the lyrics is inspiring.
