Cm                            Fm
Father, how sweet must be the pleasure
Bb                       Ebsus  Eb
You find in your eternal son
Cm                           Fm
For long before you made the heavens
Bb                          Ebsus  Eb
Both you and he rejoiced as one
Db                             Ab/C
And long before you formed the angels
Fm         Eb/G             Ab
Before you made the day and night
Cm      Bb/D          Ab/Eb    Eb
Jesus exulted in your presence
Ab/C       Bb           Cm     Fm  Bb  Eb
And he was all of your delight

[Verse 2]

Cm                                Fm
Father, what love you've shown to rebels
Bb                              Ebsus  Eb
That you would send your son so dear
Cm                           Fm
Into this world of grief and trouble
Bb                        Ebsus  Eb
To bring unworthy sinners near
Db                        Ab/C
We'll never fathom how it pained you
Fm         Eb/G             Ab
When you supplied the offering
Cm        Bb/D             Ab/Eb    Eb
To rescue those who had disdained you
Ab/C          Bb           Cm     Fm  Bb  Eb
To watch your dear son suffering

[Verse 3]

Cm                             Fm
Jesus it fills our hearts with wonder
Bb                                 Ebsus  Eb
That you would leave your heavenly place
Cm                             Fm
To take on flesh to thirst and hunger
Bb                                Ebsus  Eb
To save the ones who spurned your grace
Db                        Ab/C
You came to forfeit every mercy
Fm         Eb/G             Ab
To die that mercy we would find
Cm           Bb/D             Ab/Eb    Eb
And then you hung alone in darkness
Ab/C      Bb                        Cm     Fm  Bb  Eb
So in our hearts your grace would shine

[Verse 4]

Never again to leave your throne

Received and welcomed as God's own
