This Fathomless Love


Listen to This Song.

Lord what moved Your heart
To love lowly man
Before any star could
Herald Your praise
And why did You come 
Abasing Yourself
Veiled in a robe 
Of frail human clay
Why would You the pure 
Give Your life for the vile
The innocent 
Seeking the guilty
To be reconciled

I can’t comprehend 
This fathomless love
I’m gripped and amazed 
At what You have done 
Why would the Adored 
Become the despised
To bear all the furious wrath
That was mine
How awesome this mystery of
Your fathomless love for me

Why would You adopt 
And take as Your own
Those who had crushed 
Your one precious Son
Why mercy and grace 
Towards Your enemies
Your name they have cursed
And Your throne they have shunned
Oh how could You choose 
To show kindness to these
The ones who would 
Mock You and hate You
The ones just like me
