Thank you Father for wanting us, over our sin that stood against you
In eternity past, you created our heart
You desired our love over our lives destined for rebellion
Your must have considered this of great value
To have us one in heart, forever with You
For I am convinced that neither death nor life,
neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future,
nor any powers. neither height nor depth,
nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us
from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
With Your Son and Spirit at Your side
You possessed all heavens and kingdoms, but desired more
A universe where others could share in Your glory and love
So great was the desire of Your heart
Because it cost You more than what You or Your world had ever experienced
What You condemned, You asked Your Son to take from us
So You could receive those You will call by name
I will write on him the name of my God
and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem,
which is coming down out of heaven from my God;
and I will also write on him my new name.
To be before You forever-the apple of Your eye
Keep me as the apple of your eye;
hide me in the shadow of your wings
Jesus said, I freely give my life
The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life-
-only to take it up again. No one takes it from me,
but I lay it down of my own accord.
So You must have asked
Would You leave the glories of the heavens
To become as those whom We love
A sacrifice for others found guilty
To be made pure as before their sin
For You, the only Begotten, have the authority to ask
‘Father, by Your great mercy, forgive them’
For the love I have for You
Will cover those You give Your life for
A love so great,
It will break forth from the wrath of sin poured upon You
Your heart You have given to Me
To bring My love to them, with the same love as I have for You
So blessed will be the day We will take those into Our kingdom,
To embrace them into our family, never again to be apart
I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the LORD.
They will be my people,and I will be their God,
for they will return to me with all their heart.
He had to of said,
Father-for You and for those you have called Your own,
I will receive Your righteous anger..
the sins of the world…to rest on Me-so they can be set free…
Yes, to fulfill the pleasure of your heart,
that they will be one as You and I are one
I have given them the glory that you gave me,
that they may be one as we are one:
the only way possible for them to have life.
“My Father, if this sacrificial cup I lay down
cannot pass unless I drink it, than may Your will be done
A life full of heavenly glory, without end.
Your Only Son,
Broken for us so we can forever taste Your Loving Righteousness
Father, we also come broken before You to say
Thank You for loving us
For doing the most difficult thing God could ever do
Send the Holy One to take what was unholy
We wanted for You to know we understand Father
You too were broken when Your Son cried out for You
in agony He looked for You
but the darkness of sin held You apart
our wrath on the One You love most
because You desired more
We are and will be forever, eternally grateful
“For God so loved the world
that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him
shall not perish but have eternal life.
