Every prudent man dealeth with knowledge,
but a fool layeth open his folly.

Jesus Put Himself in My Place
Shall I tell you what brought me to Jesus, what caused me to seek His blessed face? It was this, that, to save and to cleanse me, Jesus put Himself in my place.
Oh, He felt all my load in the garden, my guilt He did carry to the tree; I was lost, and condemned unto judgment, but my Lord Himself died for me.
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.
Chorus: Jesus put Himself in my place, yes, He put Himself in my place; This is the Gospel story, to Jesus be the glory, for He put Himself in my place.
