Songs that Touch My Soul

These are two of my favorite worship songs...I was singing one this morning and thought I would post it and while doing so, stumbled across the words for the other. I love to store music in my memory bank...it seems that during my darkest or trying of times, some of the most beautiful worship songs come into my mind and allow me to escape...to meet with Christ and focus completely on him. What a wonderful avenue of opportunity you have given me...I'm blessed daily by worship music and the fact I'm able to come into your presence with it!

Isn’t He Beautiful?
Words and Music by JOHN WIMBER

Isn’t He beautiful?
Beautiful, oh, isn’t He?
Prince of Peace,
Son of God,
Isn’t He?

Isn’t He wonderful?
Wonderful, oh, isn’t he?
Counselor,
Almighty God,
Isn’t He, isn’t He,
isn’t He, isn’t He?

Yes, You are, beautiful.
Beautiful, oh, yes, You are.
Prince of Peace,
Son of God,
Yes, you are.

Yes, You are, wonderful.
Wonderful, oh, yes You are.
Counselor,
Almighty God,
Yes, You are, Yes, You are,
Yes, You are, Yes, You are.

Prince of Peace and Son of God,
Yes, You are, Yes, You are,
Yes, You are, Yes, You are.



How Deep the Father’s Love For Us
Written by Stuart Townend

How deep the Father’s love us
How vast beyond all measure.
That He should give His only son
And make a wretch His treasure.
How great the pain of searing loss
The Father turns His face away.
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory.


Behold the man upon the cross
My sin upon his shoulder.
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers.
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished.
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished.

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom.
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection.

Why should I gain from His reward
I cannot give an answer.
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom.
