I lay my sins on Jesus - The Substitute
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

The Substitute.

"Jesu, plene caritate,
manus tuæ perforatæ
  laxent mea crimina;
latus tuum lanceatum,
caput spinis coronatum,
  hæc sint medicamina." – Old Hymn.

1. I lay my sins on Jesus,
  the spotless Lamb of God;
he bears them all, and frees us
  from the accursèd load.
I bring my guilt to Jesus,
  to wash my crimson stains
white in his blood most precious,
  till not a spot remains.

2. I lay my want on Jesus,
  all fullness dwells in him;
he heals all my diseases,
  he doth my soul redeem.
I lay my griefs on Jesus,
  my burdens and my cares;
he from them all releases,
  he all my sorrows shares.

3. I rest my soul on Jesus,
  this weary soul of mine;
his right hand me embraces,
  I on his breast recline.
I love the name of Jesus,
  Immanuel, Christ, the Lord;
like fragrance on the breezes,
  his name abroad is poured.

4. I long to be like Jesus,
  meek, loving, lowly, mild;
I long to be like Jesus,
  the Father's holy child.
I long to be with Jesus
  amid the heavenly throng,
to sing with saints his praises,
  to learn the angels' song.

Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope I, 1878, 102-103.
