The perfect righteousness of GodAuthor: Albert Midlane
Published in 5 hymnals
1 The perfect righteousness of God
is witnessed in the Savior's blood;
'tis the cross of Christ we trace
His righteousness, yet wondrous grace.
2 God could not pass the sinner by;
justice demands that he should die;
but in the cross of Christ we see
how God can save, yet righteous be.
3 The judgment fell on Jesus' head;
'twas in His blood sin's debt was paid;
stern Justice can demand no more,
and Mercy can dispense her store.
4 The sinner who believes is free,
can say, "The Savior died for me";
can point to the atoning blood
and say, "This made my peace with God."
