Taking our sin

‘Why, my God, am I forsaken?
Yet I know, I’m not mistaken –
sin is serious – this is needful,
for my God to save my people.’

Bleakest hour of desolation:
triune God knows separation:
perfect fellowship in rupture,
– agony for One whose nature
holy, pure finds sin abhorrent –
now the Son becomes repugnant
to his Father, – my replacement
– he bears sin and takes my punishment;

but if Christ I’d not accepted,
this on me should still be meted.
