Homer A. Hammontree, 1921 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Shall I tell you what brought me to Jesus,
What caused me to seek His blessèd face?
It was this, that, to save and to cleanse me,
He just put Himself in my place.

Refrain

He just put Himself in my place (O bless His name!)
He just put Himself in my place (O bless His name!)
This is the Gospel story,
To Jesus the glory,
He just put Himself in my place.

O, He felt all my load in the garden,
My guilt He did carry on the tree;
I was lost, and condemned unto judgment,
But my Lord Himself died for me.

Refrain

Soon He’s coming again from the glory,
The prophets of God on this agree;
And till then this to others I’m telling,
That for them He died as for me.

Refrain
