Luther on the “Happy Exchange”

“Lord Jesus, you are my righteousness, just as I am your sin. You have taken upon yourself what is mine and have given to me what is yours. You have taken upon yourself what you were not and have given to me what I was not….”

(Luther, Works 48:12-13; ed. Helmut T. Lehmann; Minneapolis: Fortress, 2002; Quoted in DBW 14:354 n.97; Minneapolis: Fortress, 2013).
