Justified in Jesus

"The memory of the just is blessed... The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich" (Proverbs 10:7,22).  "Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness... But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith... Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us... That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith" (Galatians 3:11-14). 

The memory of the just is blest,
But how can man be justified?
The law of works affords no rest,
Which only Jesus can provide. 

The law declares that all are cursed,
For all fall short of its demand. 
But Jesus justifies the worst;
By faith in Christ alone we stand. 

God's promise came to Abraham
Of righteousness which He received.
By faith in Christ, God's spotless Lamb, 
We too are saved who have believed! 

We're justified in Jesus Christ;   
O Lord, we thank You this is true! 
Because You have been sacrificed, 
We rest and we rejoice in You!
