Verse 1:
      E                 F#m7   E/G# A2 
How deep the Father's love   for  us,
    E/G#            C#m7  B7sus4   B7 
How vast beyond all mea - sure,
     E                  F#m7 E/G# A2 
That He should give his on - ly   son
   E/B               Bsus4 B7 E 
To make a wretch his trea  -  sure.
    E/G#              A/C#   E/B   A2 
How great the pain of sear - ing   loss;
    E/G#             C#m7  Bsus4   B7 
The Father turns His face away
   E                    F#m7   E/G#  A2 
As wounds which mar the Chos - en    One
      E/B          Bsus4    B7   E    
Bring many sons to glo  -   -    ry.

Verse 2:
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.

Verse 3:
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
