His Robes for Mine

His Robes for Mine

Verse 1:
His robes for mine: O wonderful exchange!
Clothed in my sin, Christ suffered ‘neath God’s rage.
Draped in His righteousness, I’m justified.
In Christ I live, for in my place He died.

I cling to Christ, and marvel at the cost:
Jesus forsaken, God estranged from God.
Bought by such love, my life is not my own;
My praise, my all, shall be for Christ alone.

Verse 2:
His robes for mine: What cause have I for dread?
God’s daunting law, Christ mastered in my stead.
Faultless I stand, with righteous works not mine.
Saved by my Lord’s vicarious death and life.

Verse 3:
His robes for mine: God’s justice is appeased.
Jesus is crushed, and thus the Father’s pleased.
Christ drank God’s wrath on sin, then cried, ” ‘Tis done!”
Sin’s wage is paid; propitiation won.

Verse 4:
His robes for mine: Such anguish none can know.
Christ, God’s beloved, condemned as though His foe.
He, as though I, accursed and left alone;
I, as though He, embraced and welcomed home!
