22a. Wrath and Mercy from the Judgement Seat

1 With my whole heart I'll raise my song,
Thy wonders I'll proclaim;
Thou sovereign judge of right and wrong
Wilt put my foes to shame.

2 I'll sing thy majesty and grace;
My God prepares his throne
To judge the world in righteousness,
And make his vengeance known.

3 Then shall the Lord a refuge prove
For all the poor opprest;
To save the people of his love,
And give the weary rest.

4 The men that know thy name will trust
In thy abundant grace;
For thou hast ne'er forsook the just,
Who humbly seek thy face.

5 Sing praises to the righteous Lord,
Who dwells on Zion's Hill,
Who executes his threat'ning word,
Whose works his grace fulfil.
