THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS HE††††††††††††
(Tune: When I Survey†† #118† LM)
The Lord our Righteousness is He
Who died upon the cursed tree.
His perfect life and His lifeís blood
Give us acceptance with our God.
His sin-atoning blood has made
Atonement for His chosen seed.
Christ, by His death, has paid the debt
Incurred by sin for Godís elect.
As God in mercy did impute
Our sins to Christ our Substitute,
So now the God of truth and grace
Imputes to us Christís righteousness.
By blood forgiven of all sin,
Godís justice now declares us clean
And by imputed righteousness,
In Christ, worthy of His embrace!
