Representative Text

1 Jehovah is my righteousness:
In him alone I’ll boast.
Jehovah is my righteousness.
My tongue his mercy shall confess,
Who seeks and saves the lost.
Jehovah is my righteousness.

2 When sunk in fears, with anguish prest,
Bow'd down with weighty woe;
Jehovah is my righteousness.
My weary soul in him finds rest:
From Him my comforts flow.
Jehovah is my righteousness.

3 I’ll lay me down, and sweetly sleep:
For I have peace with God.
Jehovah is my righteousness.
And when I wake he shall me keep;
Thro' faith in Jesu's blood.
Jehovah is my righteousness.

4 Ten thousand and ten thousand foes
Shall not my soul destroy.
Jehovah is my righteousness.
My God their counsels overthrows;
And turns my grief to joy.
Jehovah is my righteousness.
