    There's something very powerful in these few glorious words... God takes our place? We attempt to take his? (not fully knowing what that really may be): God accepts us? We accept him? Or, as the great song writer John Prine said: God, you forgive us, we forgive you, and we both go fishing in heaven! Wonderful poem here. Intense even, in the possibilities it delivers. Love it!
