Name Sake

I have come to love a good many things in my 31 years. I love my dear husband, my two sweet children, but one love is truly fathomless. The love of Christ is one that I am privildged to expierence, but find myself still in awe that he would choose to love this sinner. Here is one of my favourite songs, entitled “Fathomless Love”, that we sing at church:

 

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 t'wards 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?
