I sinned against a holy God
And shunned His grand design,
Yet He in grace and mercy stood
To bear what wrath was mine.
Man cannot pay, God cannot die,
So God became a man,
And thus His death could satisfy
God’s gracious, holy plan.
O may I learn to praise His Name
Who took my place and died,
And may I learn to live for Him
Whose love is thus applied.
