Righteousness In Christ
By June Stein
Only by the Grace of God
Our righteousness is found in Christ,
It is ours by faith alone
Work we do will not suffice.
We can never earn our way
Christ paid the price for all our sin,
When He died upon the Cross
We were freed to live in Him.
Such a love we cannot earn
It comes to us from God alone,
Through the death of His Dear Son
He has claimed us as His own.
Praise and thanks to God we raise
And to our Savior Jesus Christ,
Only by such love Divine
We now have eternal life.
Life is ours when we believe
That Christ the Lord is God’s own Son,
Who was sent to die for us
By His death our souls were won!
We will stand before the throne
When final judgment day has come,
In Christ’s righteousness alone
Then, to enter Heaven’s home.
‘But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known…
This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.’
