Thanks Be To God (Father never was love so near)

Father, never was love so near
Tender, my deepest wounds to heal
Precious to me
Your gift of love
For me you gave your only Son

And now thanks be to God
For his gift beyond words
The Son whom he loved
No, he did not withold him
But with him gave everything
Now he's everything to me

Jesus, the heart of God revealed
With us, feeling the pain we feel
Cut to the heart
Wounded for me
Taking the blame
Making me clean
