Sunday Gatherings, June 6
Dear Fourth Church,
Today we will sing the contemporary hymn, “How Deep the Father’s Love for Us”, by Stuart Townend*. His lyric expresses the wonder of Christ’s propitiating work on the cross like few other songs I know. Its three verses reflect on the incalculable weight of our sin borne by Christ and the completeness of his work to avert the Father’s just wrath.
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.
What a privilege to lift our voices today as we recount the glory of God in the life, death, and resurrection of our Savior!
