This poem by Martha Snell Nicholson does the same. I think this has been my greatest find in all the theology books I have read. After coming across it in Charles Ryrie's Basic Theology, I memorised it and have shared it repeatedly when others have needed the encouragement of forgiveness of sin. I share it with the hope that it will minister assurance of forgiveness to you.
Then quickly One rose up from God's right hand,
before whose glory angels veiled their eyes,
He spoke, "Each jot and tittle of the Law
must be fulfilled; the guilty sinner dies!
But wait--suppose his guilt were all transferred
to Me, and that I paid his penalty!
Behold My hands, My side, My feet! One day
I was made sin for him, and died that he
might be presented faultless at Thy throne!"
And Satan fled away. Full well he knew
that he could not prevail against such love,
for every word my dear Lord spoke was true!
