THE GLORIOUS GOD
God is a God of holiness;
His Word declares His righteous law.
His truth reveals Him as He is,
Perfect and pure, without a flaw.
God is a wise, all-knowing God.
He sees all sin in sin’s true light.
His wrath must rest on guilty men –
No man is righteous in His sight.
God loved with everlasting love
His own among a sinful race.
His pitying mercy planned a way
How He could look on us in grace.
His sinless Son fulfilled God’s plan;
For us He lived, for us He died.
He bore the righteous wrath of God
And all God’s claims were satisfied.
Now this just God can justify
All who believe in Jesus’ name:
He counts them righteous in His sight
And sees no more their sin and shame.
