Refuge of His Righteousness

"The LORD hath prepared His throne for judgment… in righteousness… The LORD also will be… a Refuge in times of trouble.  And they that know Thy name will put their trust in Thee… The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God" (Psalm 9:7-10,17).  "Treasures of wickedness profit nothing: but righteousness delivereth from death" (Proverbs 10:2).  "I saw a great white throne… and whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire" (Revelation 20:11,15). 

The Lord has surely made it known
That He shall judge in righteousness. 
When scorners then approach His throne,
How great shall be their soul's distress!

There is a Refuge in our Savior,
Before that day of condemnation,
Where souls may flee to find His favor
Provided in His great salvation. 

Though mockers trust in fleeting treasure
And boast that they are doing well,
It will not bring them any pleasure
When they, at last, reside in hell. 

Our Lord, we find our place to hide,
And righteousness that You require,
Are found in You because You died
To be our Refuge from the fire!
