Hymn 85

Salvation, righteousness, and strength in Christ.

Isa. 45:21-25.

The Lord on high proclaims
His Godhead from his throne:
“Mercy and justice are the names
By which I will be known.

“Ye dying souls that sit
In darkness and distress,
Look from the borders of the pit
To my recov’ring grace.”

Sinners shall hear the sound;
Their thankful tongues shall own,
“Our righteousness and strength is found
In thee, the Lord, alone.”

In thee shall Isr’el trust,
And see their guilt forgiv’n;
God will pronounce the sinners just,
And take the saints to heav’n.
