                 HOW DEEP THE FATHER'S LOVE FOR US - Owl City
Tabbed by Omegaxis26
Standard Tuning, No Capo

Hi guys! This is Omegaxis26 with another tab of Owl City's How Deep the Father's Love for us. I 
think the intro is accurate enough, and I think the chords are fine since I transcribed it by ear.
Please read the notes at the end of this tab please. I'm not that good at making tabs and chords
from scratch so I hope for your consideration. Enjoy! :D

Intro goes like this:

G|--9--------9--------10--------10--------10--------10--------12------------------|   x6

     C                 F
How deep the Father's love for us,
     Am              G
How vast beyond all measure
     C                  F
That He should give His only Son
    Am                G  
To make a wretch His treasure

     C                 F
How great the pain of searing loss,
     Am               G
The Father turns His face away
     C                   F
As wounds which mar the chosen One,
      Am            G
Bring many sons to glory

   C            F
Behold the Man upon a cross,
    Am           G
My sin upon His shoulders
  C               F
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice,
     Am             G
Call out among the scoffers

Repeat Intro x4

    C               F
It was my sin that held Him there
   Am           G
Until it was accomplished
    C                 F
His dying breath has brought me life
   Am              G
I know that it is finished

   C                F
I will not boast in anything
    Am                  G
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
    C                F
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
     Am             G
His death and resurrection

      C                F
Why should I gain from His reward?
   Am            G
I cannot give an answer
     C               F
But this I know with all my heart
     Am                  G
His wounds have paid my ransom 

 C                 F
This, I know with all my heart,
     Am                  G C
His wounds have paid my ransom.

-> In the Intro, you can change the 3rd string, 12th fret to 2nd string 8 if you think the first 
one is too stretchy. Both of them sounds the same so it's up to you.
-> In the last part in, "This I know....", one down strum sounds good, but it's up to you how you 
want to play it.

Well, that's about it guys. Thanks for stopping bye and reading this tab, God Bless everyone! :)

very good, but there needs to be a "c" following the "g" at the end of each stanza, like the last one.

You may want to rate the tab now too:
