The punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed.@Isaiah 53:5

Horatius Bonar (1808-1889)

Horatius Bonar, Songs for the Wilderness 1843. This is believed to be Bonar’s first hymn. He later apologized for it, saying, It might be good Gospel, but it is not good poetry.

Gibbons Edmund Sedding, 1861 (🔊 pdf nwc).

I lay my sins on Jesus,
The spotless Lamb of God;
He bears them all, and frees us
From the accursèd load;
I bring my guilt to Jesus,
To wash my crimson stains
White in His blood most precious,
Till not a stain remains.

I lay my wants on Jesus;
All fullness dwells in Him;
He heals all my diseases,
He doth my soul redeem:
I lay my griefs on Jesus,
My burdens and my cares;
He from them all releases,
He all my sorrows shares.

I rest my soul on Jesus,
This weary soul of mine;
His right hand me embraces,
I on His breast recline.
I love the name of Jesus,
Immanuel, Christ, the Lord;
Like fragrance on the breezes
His name abroad is poured.

I long to be like Jesus,
Meek, loving, lowly, mild;
I long to be like Jesus,
The Father’s holy child:
I long to be with Jesus,
Amid the heavenly throng,
To sing with saints His praises,
To learn the angels’ song.
