The Great Exchange

In Christ we’re reconciled to God.

He’s caused our war with heaven to cease.

Viewing his plan, we’re over-awed;

A great exchange has won our peace.

 

Our lives were filled with sin and shame;

His life was lived in righteousness.

He stood for us and bore our blame

That we might wear his heavenly dress.

 

He stood before God’s judgment bar

As if our sins were all his own.

A crown of thorns his brow did mar;

An emblem of creation’s groan.

 

He suffered in his peoples’ place;

The object of God’s holy ire.

That God might treat us in his grace

As objects of his love’s desire.
