Note: Said Luther: "Learn to know Christ and Him crucified. Learn to sing a new song - to despair of your own works, and to cry unto Him, Lord Jesus, Thou art my righteousness, and I am Thy sin. Thou hast taken upon Thee what is mine, and given me what was Thine; what Thou wast not Thou becamest, that I might become what I was not." D' Aubigne's "History of the Reformation," book 2, chap. 8..

Look upon Jesus, sinless is He;
Father, impute His life upon me.
My life of scarlet, my sin and woe,
Cover with HIs life, whiter than snow.
Deep are the wounds transgression has made:
Red are the stains; my soul is afraid.
O to be covered, Jesus, with Thee,
Safe from the law that now judgeth me!
Longing the joy of pardon to know;
Jesus holds out a robe white as snow;
"Lord, I accept it! leaving my own,
Gladly I wear Thy pure life alone."
Reconciled by His death for my sin,
Justified by His life pure and clean,
Sanctified by obeying His word,
Glorified when returneth my Lord.

F.E. Belden.
