In My Place

In my place, he stood condemned
He who know no sin became sin for us
That we might become, his righteousness

Bearing all my sin and shame
The punishment and blame he conquered the grave
That we might become, the heirs of grace

In my place, Jesus died
The spotless Lamb laid down his life
The wrath of God was satisfied
In my place, Jesus died

Nail pierced hands, bleeding side, His body bruised, my God crucified
A crown of thorns, dying cries, his flesh was torn, my God crucified
Hallelujah, what a Savior! (Matt Boswell & Michael Bleeker)

Grace upon grace,
JRL
