Yours! mine!

By John Flavel (1627-1691)

“The condemnation was Yours, that the justification might be mine! 

The agony was Yours, that the victory might be mine!
The pain was Yours, that eternal pleasure might be mine! 

The stripes were Yours, and the healing balm issuing from them were mine! 

The vinegar and gall were Yours, that the honey and sweet issuing from them might be mine! 

The curse was Yours, that the blessing might be mine! 

The crown of thorns was Yours, that the crown of glory might be mine! 

The sin-atoning death was Yours, that the heavenly life purchased by it might be mine! 

You paid the price, that I might enjoy the priceless inheritance!
