Sunday Hymns - Salvation's Cup

There was a cup of holy wrath
Which made our fearless Savior quake;
He prayed the cup from Him would pass,
Yet drank its dregs for sinners’ sake.

Our thirst is quenched by Christ the Lord,
Who gives His cup and takes our own.
We taste and see that He is good;
He satisfies, and He alone!

Another cup o’erflows with grace—
Salvation’s bounty, poured by Christ;
He bids our thirsty, sinful race
To come, to drink without a price.

We drink a cup our Lord ordained
To point forgetful hearts above;
With bread it speaks of sinless pain,
Of saving death, of selfless love.

A cup remains, untouched and fair,
Which none shall drink till Christ appears;
The King and Bride its joy will share,
Unmixed with woe, or sin, or tears.

Songs From Scripture: The Song of Zechariah

67 Then his father Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit and prophesied:
68 Praise the Lord, the God of Israel,
because He has visited
and provided redemption for His people.
69 He has raised up a horn of salvation for us
in the house of His servant David,
70 just as He spoke by the mouth
of His holy prophets in ancient times;
71 salvation from our enemies
and from the clutches of those who hate us.
72 He has dealt mercifully with our fathers
and remembered His holy covenant
73 the oath that He swore to our father Abraham.
He has given us the privilege,
74 since we have been rescued
from our enemies’ clutches,
to serve Him without fear
75 in holiness and righteousness
in His presence all our days.
76 And child, you will be called
a prophet of the Most High,
for you will go before the Lord
to prepare His ways,
77 to give His people knowledge of salvation
through the forgiveness of their sins.
78 Because of our God’s merciful compassion,
the Dawn from on high will visit us
79 to shine on those who live in darkness
and the shadow of death,
to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Luke 1:67-79 (HCSB)

Sunday Hymns - His Robes For Mine

 HIS ROBES FOR MINE (Text by Chris Anderson; Tune by Greg Habegger)

 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.

 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.

 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.

 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!
