“The Lord our Righteousness.” Jer. 23. 6; Exod. 15. 2
J. Hart C.M.
Jehovah is my righteousness;
In him alone I’ll boast;
My tongue his mercy shall confess
Who seeks and saves the lost.
When sunk in fears, with anguish pressed,
Bowed down with weighty woe,
My weary soul in him finds rest;
From him my comforts flow.
I’ll lay me down, and sweetly sleep,
For I have peace with God;
And when I wake he shall me keep,
Through faith in Jesus’ blood.
Ten thousand and ten thousand foes
Shall not my soul destroy;
My God their counsels overthrows,
And turns my grief to joy.
