261. The Holy One Who Knew No Sin

by H.K. Burlingham
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
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)
