Jesus Died My Soul To Save

I woke up in the middle of the night last night and this song was running through my mind.  In my half-sleeping state, I began to contemplate its words, letting the reality of its truths bathe my soul.  This song really shows why the Christian can have true joy in any circumstance!

I stand amazed at Your love for me
That lonely night in Gethsemane
This sinner’s heart can’t help but thrill
To hear You pray Father not my will

What depth of love, what reach of grace
O how my grateful heart now aches
To sing it louder the refrain
Jesus died my soul to save!

Atonement full, applied to me
The blood that spilled at Calvary
Has swallowed all my guilt and shame
Now reconciled, in Jesus’ name

What depth of love, what reach of grace
O how my grateful heart now aches
To sing it louder the refrain
Jesus died my soul to save!

Oh such pleasure, oh such pain
The Father’s wrath and fury reign
On Christ Whom saints and angels praise
Jesus died my soul to save!

Come you broken bound by sin
And let your weary journey end
Come and lay your burdens down
Where mercy rules and peace abounds

What depth of love, what reach of grace
O how my grateful heart now aches
To sing it louder the refrain
Jesus died my soul to save!

I pray that this may bless you today and give you great assurance of the love of God for you and the severity of the consequences that He saved you from.  Here is a link to the song on youtube:
