My Jesus, Fair

At church, during the month of March, we've been singing the hymn My Jesus, Fair (by Chris Anderson and Greg Habegger). I think the gospel message in this song is incredible and worthy of being shared. I would encourage you to reflect on the words this week.

My Jesus fair was pierced by thorns
By thorns from the fall
Thus He who gave the curse was torn
To end the curse for all

My Jesus meek was scorned by men
By men in blasphemy
"Father forgive their senseless sin!"
He prayed for them, for me

My Jesus kind was torn by nails
By nails of cruel men
And to His cross as grace prevailed
God pinned my wretched sin

My Jesus pure was crushed by God
In judgment just
The Father grieved yet turned his rod
On Christ made sin for us

My Jesus strong shall come to reign
To reign in majesty
The Lamb arose and death is slain
Lord, come in victory

Chorus

O love divine, O matchless grace
That God should die for men!
With joyful grief I lift my praise
Abhorring all my sin
Adoring only Him


Note: I'm struck every time I sing the line, "abhorring all my sin, adoring only Him." That is as it should be. May it be so in me.
