In Christ We StandDon Fortner

(Tune: #308 — Higher Ground — LMD )


1.       By nature none are good, not one can boast of goodness in God’s sight;

Sinners we are, yes, everyone; and sinners never can do right.

Yet, God’s elect, let it be known, the righteousness of God are made. —

Made one with Christ, God’s darling Son, our righteousness can never fade!


2.       In Christ we stand, complete and just. — His holiness He gives to us!

Of Christ we sing. In Christ we trust. — God’s law cannot condemn the just.

The One-in-Three, and Three-in-One, has set His kingdom in our hearts.

In us God makes His wonders known, by boundless mercy He imparts.


3.       Life, light and holiness divine, by faith in Christ, we have received.

The Spirit makes His goodness shine, Who sweetly forced us to believe.

Redeemed by blood, we’re justified; and by the blood we’re sanctified.

And, soon, with Jesus crucified, with His own glory, glorified!
