Christ’s Righteousness. Isa. 45. 24; 1 Cor. 1. 30

J. Kent                  8.7.4.

1
When to worship saints assemble,
Let the song to Jesus flow.
He forsook his ancient glory,
Groaned and bled for worms below.
Ransomed mortals,
Join to swell the sacred song.

2
Ye who find yourselves polluted,
Feel your hearts a sink of sin,
Ye shall have by God imputed,
Righteousness that’s white and clean.
’Tis the garment
Wove by everlasting love.

3
’Tis Jehovah’s own providing;
Better, wisdom can’t devise;
From his eye for ever hiding
Sins of every name and size;
He that wears it
Is by God exalted high.

4
Adam, when the tempter foiled him,
His bright robes were quickly gone;
But this righteousness of Jesus
Once applied, ’tis always on;
’Tis their title
To the mansion love ordained.
