    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.

    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!


    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.

    --Chris Anderson (2013)
