Unchanging Righteousness

In his days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely. And this is the name
by which he will be called: "The LORD is our righteousness" (Jeremiah 23:6 ESV).

 

VERSE

1.   There sits My Righteousness,
         Enthroned at God's right hand:
      The perfect, spotless Lamb of God,
         In Him alone I stand.
      No better is my stand
         On days when all feels right,
      No worse when days are dark and gray,
         For nothing dims His light.

CHORUS

     Unchanging Righteousness,
         My only hope and plea,
      That Jesus came and lived and bled
         And died and rose for me.

VERSE

2.   The Law cannot condemn,
         Since I in Christ abide.
      It sees His perfect work and is
         Completely satisfied.
      When God looks down on me,
         He sees no lack or need,
      For there in heaven, My Righteousness
         Does always intercede.

CHORUS

     Unchanging Righteousness,
         My only hope and plea,
      That Jesus came and lived and bled
         And died and rose for me.

VERSE

3.   By imputation mine,
         Through faith in Christ alone,
      Enfolded in His righteousness
         That God has made my own.
      A never ending store,
         A bountiful supply!
      Each day the same, My Righteousness
         Exalted reigns on high.

CHORUS

     Unchanging Righteousness,
         My only hope and plea,
      That Jesus came and lived and bled
         And died and rose for me.

TAG

      That Jesus came and lived and bled
         And died and rose for me.

THEME: Imputation of Christ's Righteousness

The idea for this song came from two sources. The first was a Bible study during Prayer Meeting on Wednesday eveing, June 8, 2005 at Grace Baptist Church in Cape Coral. Tom Ascol taught on "What is Christianity?" In his lesson he emphasized a truth that should be obvious. As Christians, our identity and all our hope is bound up in Christ. He alone is Savior and Lord. The second source was a new book I was reading by Iain Murray, The Old Evangelicalism, released in 2005. Following Prayer Meeting I finished reading chapter 3: "Christ Our Righteousness: God's Way of Salvation." The truth that Iain Murray was highlighting resonated in my heart and echoed what I had heard in Prayer Meeting: Christ and Christ alone is our perfect, Unchanging Righteousness.
