W is for Wow

I could come up with a better W word, but I didn't. So there.

This morning in Chapel Joel and Lizzy (our class sponsors) announced the Unashamed class hymn: How Great the Father's Love for Us. This was my second choice (after Come Thou Fount), but overall I'm quite pleased with it. There were possibilities that I like a lot less.

How deep the Father's love for us,
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To 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 a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders
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

We like this hymn, "How Great the Father's Love for Us," too, and were thinking about putting it in our wedding. However, we need the sheet music. Can anyone tell me where we might get it? Please email eric_hofman@hotmail.com. Thanks!
