He Who Was Sinless

“He Who was sinless was made sin for us.”
Turning depravity into salvation
For sinners deserving only damnation.
Who but Jehovah could plan such a thing,
Jehovah of Hosts, the conquering King.
It pleased Him to sacrifice His only Son
Because of His love for the wholly undone;
He loved us and changed us by mercy and grace
Into sanctified children—His chosen race.
We now glorify Him, exalting His name,
And into eternity still will proclaim
The wonder He wrought, and the joy that He brought:
With the blood of His Son, His people He bought!
He Who was sinless was made sin for us!
