Righteousness Imputed. Rom. 3. 22, 25; 4. 24; 2 Cor. 5. 19

J. Hart                                    8.3.

1
Righteousness to the believer,
Freely given, comes from heaven,
God himself the giver.

2
Christ has wrought this mighty wonder;
God and man by him can
Meet, and never sunder.

3
All the law in human nature
He fulfilled; reconciled
Creature and Creator.

4
Every one, without exemption,
That believes, now receives
Absolute redemption.

5
[Robes of righteousness imputed,
White and whole, clothe the soul,
Each exactly suited.]

6
’Tis a way of God’s own finding;
’Tis his act, and the pact
Cannot but be binding.

7
Here is no prevarication;
Justice stands, and demands
Full and free salvation.
