In another thread someone asked what is the gospel. I thought in this thread we could make a collection of our favorite quotes and hymns declaring the gospel and the grace of God to us. I had given the hymn How Deep the Fathers Love For Us as one:How deep the Father's love for usHow vast beyond all measureThat He should give His only SonTo make a wretch His treasureHow great the pain of searing lossThe Father turns His face awayAs wounds which mar the Chosen OneBring many sons to gloryBehold the man upon a crossMy sin upon His shouldersAshamed I hear my mocking voiceCall out among the scoffersIt was my sin that held Him thereUntil it was accomplishedHis dying breath has brought me lifeI know that it is finishedI will not boast in anythingNo gifts, no power, no wisdomBut I will boast in Jesus ChristHis death and resurrectionWhy should I gain from His rewardI cannot give an answerBut this I know with all my heartHis wounds have paid my ransom Please add to your hearts content!
I really like come though fount because it has a concise presentation of the gospel complete with forgiveness through the cross but not lacking what our life should be now.

Amazing grace how sweet the soundThat saved a [b]wretch[/b] like meI once was lost, but now I'm foundWas blind but now I see

Turn you eyes upon JesusLook full in His wonderful faceAnd the things of earth will grow strangely dimIn the Light of His glory and grace.
