His heart was broken mine was mended,
He became sin now I am clean,
The Cross He carried bore my burden
The nails that held Him set me free

His Life for Mine,
His Life for Mine,
How could it ever be?
That He would die,
God’s Son would die,
To save a wretch like me,
What love divine,
He gave His life for Mine

His scars of suffering brought me healing,
He spilled His blood to fill my soul,
His crown of thorns made me royalty,
His sorrow gave me joy untold.

His Life for Mine,
His Life for Mine,
How could it ever be?
That He would die,
God’s Son would die,
To save a wretch like me,
What love divine,
He gave His life for Mine

He was despised and rejected
Stripped of His garment and oppressed
I am loved and excepted
And I wear a robe of righteousness

His Life for Mine,
His Life for Mine,
How could it ever be?
That He would die,
God’s Son would die,
To save a wretch like me, - Like me
What love divine,
He gave His life for Mine - For Mine

    Very nice song. Message is great... Jesus died to save us all. His life to set us free. Glory be to God.

    Jesus christ saw from heaven a sad, angry, bitter, and lost young teenager who was about to end her life! He did not want her to commit suicide so he sent to young ladies to her door to hear the gospel! The wonderful news of salvation. She bowed her head in sinful prayer and her soul was and still is redeemed! That teenager was me! God is so good to have snatched me out of satan's grip! Jesus christ gave his life for mine! He wants to do this for you as well!
