His Robes for Mine

Have you heard this fairly new hymn? It is amazing. I just love it!! I downloaded it on iTunes for 99 cents and Paige and I have been enjoying singing it. We heard it first at church. Anywhoo, I'm not going to get off on a tangent, but I wanted to share it with you all. If you listen to the tune on the sample from iTunes, you can sing along with just the words. This website even has the sheet music, but I really enjoy singing it with the BJU quartet that I downloaded on iTunes.

Church Works Media

Here are the words:

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.


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.

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!
