The Father’s Heart

“The Father’s Heart”

~ ~Lois Beckwith


 

O the wonderful love of the Father’s heart!

That would send His Beloved Son,

To this world of hatred, and sin, and strife,

To redeem quilty sinners undone.

 

It was fathomless love, unspeakable,

That would so move the Father’s heart,

That His only begotten Son He sent,

To take the poor sinner’s part.

 

For we were afar off, straying, lost,

But in mercy, God sent His Son,

Has this marvels love

Your heart and affections won?

 

We were lost, we were rebels, gone far from God,

But Jesus for us did die;

Bore our sins on the cross, paid our debt with His

blood,

To the Father, we’re now brought nigh.

 

And Jesus so willingly left the throne,

So willingly went to the cross,

For though He was rich, for our sakes became poor,

To redeem our poor souls from loss.

 

It was love, matchless love held Him on the cross,

‘Till for sin He did fully atone:

The nails could never have held Him there,

But ’twas love, wondrous love alone.

 

Yes, Jesus was willing to take our place,

He was willing to bear our sin,

This holy, spotless Lamb of God

Paid our debt, our poor hearts to win.

 

The way back to God is open now,

For all who receive His Son,

For all who accept Him as Saviour now,

And acknowledge the work He has done.

 

Through ages to come, in the Father’s house,

He will riches of grace impart,

But we never will fathom or comprehend,

The love of the Father’s heart.

 

 

God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:17

 

And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. 1 John 4:14

 

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

 

Jesus said … For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of Him that sent me. John 6:35,38

 

 

For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that ye through His poverty might be rich. 2 Corinthians 8:9

 

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God. 1 John 3:1

 

Truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son Jesus Christ. 1 John 1:3
