Hymns using same tune:

#471, #1003


We praise Thee for Thy righteousness;

Thy justice, Father, we confess,

And fully testify.

Thou art the judge of all mankind,

In Thee injustice none can find,

Nor wrong to Thee apply.


O holy Father, righteous One,

Thy righteousness upholds Thy throne,

'Tis a foundation sure.

'Tis through this righteousness of Thine

That reigns in Christ the grace divine,

And peace we thus secure.


Thy righteousness has caused Thy Son

To die for us that we be won,

Redemption thus was bought;

Thy righteousness has justified

When Christ's redemption was applied,

Salvation thus was wrought.


That Thou might show Thy righteousness,

With Thy forgiveness Thou didst bless

Men in the ancient age;

For Thee Thy righteousness to show,

Remission Thou dost now bestow

On sinners in this age.


All people Thou wilt judge one day,

Thy righteousness to all display

By Christ, Thy Son, our Lord;

Yet fast we'll stand, for none can move,

Thy righteousness we'll ever prove,

With grace Thou wilt afford.


With justice is Thy kingdom filled,

And peace upon it Thou dost build

With all in harmony;

In the new heaven and new earth

Thy righteousness will be their worth,

As promised, God, by Thee.
