Upon a life I have not lived/Upon a death I did not die/Another’s life, another’s death/I stake my whole eternity.
Not on the tears which I have shed/Not on the sorrows I have known/Another’s tears, another’s griefs/On these I rest, on these alone.
O Jesus, Son of God, I build/On what Thy cross has done for me/There both my death and life I read/My guilt, and pardon there I see. – Horatius Bonar (1808-1889)
