261. The Holy One Who Knew No Sin

C.M.D.
by H.K. Burlingham
1
The holy One who knew no sin,
 
God made Him sin for us;
 
The Saviour died our souls to win,
 
Upon the shameful cross.
 
His precious blood alone availed
 
To wash our sins away;
 
Through weakness He o'er hell prevailed,
 
Through death He won the day.
2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Corinthians 15:3; Philippians 2:8; Hebrews 12:2; 2 Corinthians 13:4; 1 Peter 1:19; Hebrews 2:14
2
His beauty shineth far above
 
Our feeble power of praise;
 
And we shall live and learn His love
 
Through everlasting days.
 
The knowing this, that us He loves,
 
Hath made our cup run o'er;
 
Jesus, Thy name our spirit moves,
 
Today and evermore.
Song of Solomon 5:10-16; Psalm 23:5
“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” (2 Corinthians 5:21)
“For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures.” (1 Corinthians 15:3)
“And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.” (Philippians 2:8)
“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:2)
“For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you.” (2 Corinthians 13:4)
“But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” (1 Peter 1:19)
“Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil.” (Hebrews 2:14)
“My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand. His head is as the most fine gold, his locks are bushy, and black as a raven. His eyes are as the eyes of doves by the rivers of waters, washed with milk, and fitly set. His cheeks are as a bed of spices, as sweet flowers: his lips like lilies, dropping sweet smelling myrrh. His hands are as gold rings set with the beryl: his belly is as bright ivory overlaid with sapphires. His legs are as pillars of marble, set upon sockets of fine gold: his countenance is as Lebanon, excellent as the cedars. His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.” (Song of Solomon 5:10-16)
“Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.” (Psalm 23:5)
