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!

"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. " Hebrews 10:23-25
