Eric & Polly Rapp: Music

He Took My Part

(© 2006 Eric Rapp. All rights reserved.)
The Gospel in a nutshell.

Oh how I want to tell you of the joy that's in my heart
Since God gave me the promise that Jesus took my part
Jesus took my part

The Godhead in a manger--a lowly, humble sight
Because I cannot keep His law, he lived a perfect life
He lived a perfect life.

And then he went to Calvary--they hung him on a tree
The Father's wrath, which I deserved--he took it all for me
He took it all for me.

Then that Sunday morning in the garden Mary cried
But there he stood before her, now I shall never die
I shall never die.

Oh how I want to tell you of the joy that's in my heart
Since God gave me the promise that Jesus took my part
Jesus took my part
