Hymn Review: Deep Were His Wounds (WS 722)

March 5, 2021

The Season of Lent is full of many theologically rich hymns which point to the high cost God paid in order to redeem sinful humanity to Himself. "Deep Were His Wounds" is not a familiar Lenten hymn, in part because it is relatively modern (20th Century), written by an unfamiliar author, and also isn't found in many Lutheran Hymnals. But it is a beautiful hymn, which simply describes the "Great Exchange" of Christ for Sinners. Join Pastors Rob Sauers and Nathanael Mayhew as they take a look at this hymn and enrich our Lenten meditations.
