He took our flesh! - Christ for us
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Christ for us.

    1. He took our flesh!
as man to life our life below,
as man our death to undergo,
as man to bear our guilt and woe:
    behold, behold the man! (PDF - Midi)

    2. He took our place!
the Righteous for the unrighteous dies;
upon the altar bleeding lies
the sin-atoning Sacrifice:
    behold the Christ of God!

    3. He took our sins!
he callèd them his own, and they
on him as the Sin-offering lay;
he bore each one of them away:
    behold the Lamb of God!

    4. He took our guilt!
guilt as the ocean-flood immense;
bore it, in love, for ever hence;
gave in exchange his innocence:
    behold the Son of God!

    5. He took our death!
the death we should have undergone
God's holy, well belovèd Son
accepts it as in law his own:
    behold the Surety's cross!

    6. He took our doom!
for us the Sinless sin was made,
our condemnation on him laid,
our everlasting debt was paid:
    behold the empty tomb!

    7. He took our name!
the second Adam, next to kin,
man, very man, without, within,
in everything excepting sin:
    behold the Son of Man!

    8. He bore our shame!
descending from the heavenly throne,
bruised, buffeted, and spit upon,
he bore the sinner's shame alone:
    behold the King of kings!

Horatius Bonar, Until the day break, 1890, 48-50.
