The Righteousness of God

Oh the righteousness of God

Has been revealed by the Father above

In that He gave His only Son

To our ransom with His own blood

No man is righteous, no not one

All have fallen short of the glory of God

Oh, but His flesh was torn!

And the Father was appeased and we can now come

 

In this one thing will I boast

In the Cross of Christ alone

Justified as a gift by His grace

In this redemption He has displayed His righteousness

The wrath of God has now ceased
Upon those who choose to believe
In the atonement that has been made
And the Father justifies them upon this faith
If we are baptized into His death
And crucified with Christ Jesus
If we will put to death the deeds of the flesh
And choose to walk by His Spirit

This is the Spirit of adoption

By this Spirit we cry “Abba! Abba!”
As the Children of God (here just return to the chorus progression repeat)
