His Robes for Mine

Words: Chris Anderson
Music: Greg Habegger

[Key:A]

Verse 1
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.

Verse 2
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.

Chorus
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.
        [**Hold 4 beats**]
My praise, my all,
Shall be for Christ alone.

Verse 3
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!

Chorus
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.
         [**Hold 4 beats**]
My praise, my all,
Shall be for Christ alone.

Verse 4
His robes for mine:
Such anguish none can know.
Christ, God’s belov’d,
Condemned as though His foe.
He, as though I,
Accursed and left alone;
I, as though He,
Embraced and welcomed home!

Chorus
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.
          [**Hold 4 beats**]
My praise, my all,
Shall be for Christ alone.

Chorus
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.
        [**Hold 4 beats**]
My praise, my all,
Shall be for Christ alone.

Meekness and Majesty

Graham Kendrick
[Key: A]

Verse 1
Meekness and majesty, manhood and deity
In perfect harmony, the Man who is God.
Lord of eternity dwells in humanity,
Kneels in humility and washes our feet.

Verse 2
Father’s pure radiance, perfect in innocence
Yet learns obedience to death on a cross.
Suffering to give us life,
Conquering through sacrifice,
And as they crucify prays Father forgive!

Chorus
O, what a mystery! Meekness and majesty!
Bow down and worship, for this is your God!

Verse 3
Wisdom unsearchable, God the invisible,
Love indestructible in frailty appears.
Lord of infinity stooping so tenderly,
Lifts our humanity to the heights of His throne.

Chorus
O, what a mystery! Meekness and majesty!
Bow down and worship, for this is your God!

O, what a mystery! Meekness and majesty!
Bow down and worship, for this is your God!

Bow down and worship, for this is your God!

Highly Exalted

Robin Mark, Paul Baloche
[Key: Db]

Verse 1
You were despised
You were rejected, Lord.
Those who passed by
Even averted their gaze from Your sight
Such was the suffering You bore for us.

Led like a lamb, a lamb to the slaughter
You spoke not a word
But chose to be silent
Though You did no wrong
Nor was deceitfulness found in You.

Yet by Your wounds our salvation has come
Yet by Your suffering our freedom is won!

Chorus
For God has highly exalted Your Name!
He has enthroned You on high,
Jesus the Name above all names!

God has highly exalted Your Name!
He has enthroned You on high,
Jesus the Name above all names.

Verse 2
You were despised
You were rejected, Lord.
Those who passed by
Even averted their gaze from Your sight.
Such was the suffering You bore for us.

Led like a lamb, a lamb to the slaughter
You spoke not a word,
But chose to be silent
Though You did no wrong
Nor was deceitfulness found in You.

Yet by Your wounds our salvation has come
Yet by Your suffering our freedom is won!

Chorus
For God has highly exalted Your Name!
He has enthroned You on high,
Jesus the Name above all names!

God has highly exalted Your Name!
He has enthroned You on high,
Jesus the Name above all names!

Jesus, the Name above all.

I Hear the Words of Love

Piano Only

With Vocals

Horatius Bonar
Music from Day’s Psalter
[Key: Eb]

Verse 1
I hear the words of love,
I gaze upon the blood,
I see the mighty Sacrifice,
And I have peace with God.

Verse 2
’Tis everlasting peace!
Sure as Jehovah’s Name;
’Tis stable as His steadfast throne,
Forevermore the same.

Verse 3
The clouds may go and come,
And storms may sweep my sky—
This blood-sealed friendship changes not;
The Cross is ever nigh.

Verse 4
My love is oft times low,
My joy still ebbs and flows;
But peace with Him remains the same,
No change Jehovah knows.

Verse 5
I change, He changes not,
The Christ can never die;
His love, not mine, the resting place,
His truth, not mine, the tie.

Here I Am to Worship

Light of the world,
You stepped down into darkness,
Opened my eyes, let me see
Beauty that made this heart adore You,
Hope of a life spent with You.

Glorious in Heaven above,
Humbly You came to the earth You created,
All for love’s sake became poor.

Here I am to say that You’re my God
You’re altogether lovely, altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me!

To see my sin upon that cross!
I’ll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross!

Here I am to say that You’re my God
You’re altogether lovely, altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me!

Victory in Jesus

20368

E.M. Bartlett
[Key: D]

Verse 1
I heard an old, old story how a Savior came from glory,
How He gave His life on Calvary to save a wretch like me;
I heard about His groaning, of His precious blood’s atoning,
Then I repented of my sins and won the victory

Chorus
O victory in Jesus, my Savior, forever!
He sought me and bought me with His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him, and all my love is due Him.
He plunged me to victory beneath the cleansing flood

Verse 2
I heard about His healing, of His cleansing pow’r revealing
How he made the lame to walk again and caused the blind to see;
And then I cried, “Dear Jesus, come and heal my broken spirit,”
And some sweet day I’ll sing up there the song of victory.

Chorus
O victory in Jesus, my Savior, forever!
He sought me and bought me with His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him, and all my love is due Him.
He plunged me to victory beneath the cleansing flood

Verse 3
I heard about a mansion he has built for me in glory,
And I heard about the streets of gold beyond the crystal sea;
About the angels singing and the old redemption story,
And some sweet day I’ll sing up there the song of victory.

Chorus
O victory in Jesus, my Savior, forever!
He sought me and bought me with His redeeming blood;
He loved me ere I knew Him, and all my love is due Him.
He plunged me to victory beneath the cleansing flood

Rock of Ages

10793

Augustus M. Toplady, 1776
[Key: F]

Verse 1
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee;
Let the water and the blood,
From Thy wounded side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure;
Cleanse me from its guilt and power.

Verse 2
Not the labor of my hands
Can fulfill Thy law’s demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears forever flow,
All for sin could not atone;
Thou must save, and Thou alone.

Verse 3
Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to Thy cross I cling;
Naked, come to Thee for dress;
Helpless look to Thee for grace;
Foul, I to the Fountain fly;
Wash me, Savior, or I die.

Verse 4
While I draw this fleeting breath,
When mine eyelids close in death
When I soar to worlds unknown,
See Thee on Thy judgment throne,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee.
