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
