What love the Father has lavished on us
That we should be called His sons and daughters
Precious in His sight
Greater love this world had never seen
When He hung on that tree
O why would He do such a thing
For dirty sinners like you and me?

O God thank You for loving me
When on the cross You made history
Lord You died for me
Forever my praise will go to Thee
O God thank You for choosing me
To be Your child and bear Your name
O Jesus I will never cease to sing Your praise

Verse 2:
Your love is patient and humble and kind
It's greater than all my sin
It always protects and trusts and hopes
And will have no end
It's Your love that lifted me up from the depths
Set my feet on a solid rock
With a firm place to stand
Lord I always will trust in Your loving hand

How wide how long
How high how deep
How endless is Your love for me
How wide how long
How high how deep
How endless is Your love for me

    Thank you for my second chance in life and I owe it all to you. I love you God and I will stand by your side when others won't. You've got a Warrior in me and I will defend your holy name. I love you God and together we will shine brighter than any Sun or cluster of stars in the Sky. <3 Thank you for loving me <3.

    This song is an anointed christian song. It ministers to me a lot. When I sing this song, most at time, I beginng to cry and I sort of re-discover the love of God which enabled me to give my life to Christ fifteen years ago. So many people were better than I, yet I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior in a very fortunate way but most of thosee people didn't. So when I hear, or sing this song, it miniisters volume to me. It reminds of how some of the good people started smoking. And their like became mess while mine was rescuedvthrough salvation in Jesus-Christ.

    How come god has this love which people here on earth tend to look on other creations? God is the source of great love which we would never find from anything or anyone else... Praise be to jesus!!! A life for love, love for the world who neglected him. But we are forgiven, once we have faith on what he did on the cross...

    When everyone else turns their back on me, god is always there for me, loving me and protecting me from falling. He loves me for what i am, not who i am. He is always with me no matter what. Thank you, god, for your love that i don't deserve.

    Sometimes, when everything fails and god knows we're failing, he never condemns us. But he waits to pick us up when the thing we're doing hurts us and leaves us empty. Many times instead of thanking god we tend to blame him, but if we resist that temptation to curse and just sit in his presence, his overwhelming love will capture us. That is gods love and that is what this song means to me. God bless you
