Justified in Jesus

"O send out Thy light and thy truth: let them lead me… unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy" (Psalm 43:3,4).  "The curse causeless shall not come" (Proverbs 26:2).  "All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God hath set forth to be a Propitiation through faith in His blood… To declare… at this time His righteousness: that He might be Just, and the Justifier of him which believeth in Jesus" (Romans 3:23-26). 

The light and the truth of our Lord
Have led to the altar of God. 
The judgment of God by His sword
Was satisfied there by His rod. 

It is to the cross we are led  
Where holy demands of God's laws
Were borne by our Lord in our stead
To render our curse without cause!    

Praise God for His justification
That sinners may freely receive
Through Jesus who purchased salvation
For all who in Him will believe! 

Lord Jesus, it was Your desire  
That caused You to die in our place     
To be Just, and yet Justifier
Of those justified by Your grace!
