Salvation is forever nigh
the ones who trust in God's great care;
let grace, descending from on high
bless all with hope and glory here.
Let earth know truth and mercy met
when Christ the Lord came down from heaven.
By his obedience, so complete,
is justice pleased, and peace is given.
Now truth and honor shall abound,
devotions fill the earth again,
and heavenly influence bless the ground
in our Redeemer's gentle reign.
His righteous ways will lead before,
to give us free approach to God;
our wandering feet shall stray no more;
we’ll mark his steps, and keep his road.
