Representative Text

1 Righteousness to the believer,
Freely given, comes from heaven,

2 Christ has wrought this mighty wonder;

3 All the law in human nature
He fulfilled; reconciled
Creature and Creator.

4 Every one, without exemption,
That believes, now receives
Absolute redemption.

5 [Robes of righteousness imputed,
White and whole, clothe the soul,

6 ’Tis a way of God’s own finding;
’Tis his act, and the pact
Cannot but be binding.

7 Here is no prevarication;
Justice stands, and demands
Full and free salvation.
