Was foretold long ago

That the Christ must suffer

That the Christ must die

And that the Christ will break free from the icy clutch of death

And so it was fulfilled in the fullness of time

In his death was a reality

The reality of a divine exchange

The reality of his death

Was indeed the reality of a divine exchange

What I was he became

What he was I became

Giving his life for my life

Being rejected that I might be accepted

Becoming a sinner that I might become a saint

Suffering a vicarious death that I might experience a glorious resurrection

He died that I might live

Coming under a curse that I might be blessed

Becoming poor that I might become rich

That was a divine exchange

That which forever altered the course of my life
