189. Our Sins Were Borne by Jesus
by H. Bonar
Our sins were borne by Jesus,
The holy Lamb of God;
He took them all and freed us
From that condemning load.
Our guilt was borne by Jesus,
Who washed the crimson stains
White in His blood most precious,
Till not a spot remains.
Our wants are known to Jesus;
All fullness dwells in Him;
He healeth all diseases
Who did our souls redeem.
We tell our griefs to Jesus—
Our burdens and our cares;
He from them all releases—
Who all our sorrow shares.
We love the name of Jesus,
The Christ of God, the Lord;
Like fragrance on the breezes,
His name is spread abroad.
We long to be with Jesus,
With all the ransomed throng,
To sing for aye His praises,
The one eternal song.
