46. He Took My Place

1 There was no one to take my place,
Upon the cruel cross,
No Savior but the Son of God,
Could e’er restore my loss.

He took my place on Calvary,
And there He bore my sins for me;
O wondrous token of God’s grace,
When Jesus came and took my place.

2 He saw the diadem of thorns,
He heard the rabble’s plea,
Yet knowing all he chose to die,
And give Himself for me. [Refrain]

3 He took my place upon the tree,
And shall my soul despise,
The life that Jesus offers me,
In mercy’s sacrifice? [Refrain]

4 This guiltless Lamb, once and for all,
Was crucified and rose
Triumphant over sin and death,
To save me from these foes. [Refrain]
