No right­eous­ness of mine
Can stand before the Throne,
But Christ’s own per­fect works are now my ve­ry own!
In Christ I’m free!
The Cross of Christ made peace with God for ev­en me!

The ho­ly law of God
That once de­clared my death
Now whis­pers All is well with Je­sus’ dy­ing breath!
Once dead, now raised!
His glo­rious Cross puts Death to death! Let Christ be praised!

Now Si­nai holds no fear!
Its fie­ry curs­es fade,
Outshined by rays of grace in Cal­v’ry’s love dis­played!
In wor­ship, fall!
Adore the Son of God whose out­poured blood heals all!
