Our Sins Were Borne By Jesus

by Horatius Bonar (1808-1889)

Tune: Fulness

1 OUR sins were borne by Jesus,
The holy Lamb of God:
He took them all, and freed us
From that condemning load.
Our guilt was borne by Jesus,
Who washed the crimson stains
White in His blood most precious,
Till not a spot remains.

2 Our wants are known to Jesus;
All fulness dwells in Him:
He healeth all diseases,
Who did our souls redeem.
We tell our griefs to Jesus,
Our burdens and our cares;
He from them all releases,
Who all our sorrow shares.

3 We love the name of Jesus,
The Christ of God, the Lord;
Like fragrance on the breezes,
His name is spread abroad.
We long to be with Jesus,
With all the ransomed throng,
For ever sing His praises,
The one eternal song.
