Your Righteous Thirst, My Sin

Your Righteous Thirst, My Sin

You Who knew no sin
bore my sin upon the Cross.

You took that cup willingly.
It caused you agony and thirst—

thirst not only for a drink
but for my righteousness.

The Father quenched Your thirst that day
by pouring His holy wrath upon my sin,

and I, who knew no righteousness,
took on Your righteousness that day.
