THE SUBSTITUTE




I lay my sins on Jesus,
the spotless Lamb of God;
He bears them all, and frees us
from the accursed load;
I bring my guilt to Jesus,
to wash my crimson stains
White in His blood most precious,
till not a stain remains.


I lay my wants 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.


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.


I long to be like Jesus,
Meek, loving, lowly, mild;
I long to be like Jesus,
the Fatherís holy Child:
I long to be with Jesus,
amid the heavenly throng,
To sing with saints His praises,
to learn the angelsí song.


---Alternative verses---


I long to be like Jesus,
strong, loving, lowly, mild;
I long to be like Jesus,
the Fatherís holy Child:
I long to be with Jesus,
amid the heavenly throng,
To sing with saints His praises,
to learn the angelsí song.
