Your Righteousness

“This gospel unveils a continual revelation of God’s righteousness—a perfect righteousness given to us when we believe. And it moves us from receiving life through faith, to the power of living by faith. This is what the Scripture means when it says: “We are right with God through life-giving faith!”” Romans 1:17 TPT

God we receive Your righteousness
Given to us as we believe in Jesus
A perfect righteousness 
Making us right with You forever

When we believe in Jesus
As Your Son, our Saviour
You give us the precious gift
Of Your righteousness 

All the good things You have done
It’s like You credit them to us
All the goodness that You are
You in us empower

God we receive Your righteousness
Given to us as we believe in Jesus
A perfect righteousness 
Making us right with You forever

Your righteousness that we receive
Educates our thoughts and deeds
Teaches us to be like You
In all that we say and do

As we see and understand
Your righteousness in love’s actions
We become what we behold
Sons of God, in Jesus’ mould

God we receive Your righteousness
Given to us as we believe in Jesus
A perfect righteousness 
Making us right with You forever

When days are dark we turn to You
To see the way you would have us come through
Your righteous, Your loving path
That You highlight and empower in us

When our path seems blocked
We rejoice in Your holy light
Your righteous love that fills our hearts
Until Your victory You highlight

God we receive Your righteousness
Given to us as we believe in Jesus
A perfect righteousness 
Making us right with You forever

In relationships with others
Your righteousness love empowers
Enabling us to live at peace
Even when confronted by enemies

And when the path seems clear ahead
You righteousness it keeps us safe
On the narrow path of love
Living You in all our life

God we receive Your righteousness
Given to us as we believe in Jesus
A perfect righteousness 
Making us right with You forever

And when at night we rest our head
Your righteousness empowers rest
Knowing that where we may have failed You
Your righteousness covers all our sins

On this journey we call life
Your righteousness it is our guard
Keeping us as Your true children
While teaching us to live Your kingdom

God we receive Your righteousness
Given to us as we believe in Jesus
A perfect righteousness 
Making us right with You forever
