We praise Thee for Thy righteousness

We praise Thee for Thy righteousness;
Thy justice, Father, we confess,
    And fully testify.
Thou art the judge of all mankind,
In Thee injustice none can find,
    Nor wrong to Thee apply.
O holy Father, righteous One,
Thy righteousness upholds Thy throne,
    ’Tis a foundation sure.
’Tis through this righteousness of Thine
That reigns in Christ the grace divine,
    And peace we thus secure.
Thy righteousness has caused Thy Son
To die for us that we be won,
    Redemption thus was bought;
Thy righteousness has justified
When Christ’s redemption was applied,
    Salvation thus was wrought.
That Thou might show Thy righteousness,
With Thy forgiveness Thou didst bless
    Men in the ancient age;
For Thee Thy righteousness to show,
Remission Thou dost now bestow
    On sinners in this age.
All people Thou wilt judge one day,
Thy righteousness to all display
    By Christ, Thy Son, our Lord;
Yet fast we’ll stand, for none can move,
Thy righteousness we’ll ever prove,
    With grace Thou wilt afford.
With justice is Thy kingdom filled,
And peace upon it Thou dost build
    With all in harmony;
In the new heaven and new earth
Thy righteousness will be their worth,
    As promised, God, by Thee.

Отец, за праведноть твою

Мы воздаем тебе хвалу,

Свидетельство неся:

Ты совершенно справедлив,

Лишь ты судьей достоин быть

Для человечества.

Not only did the Lord Jesus live a life that was a model for us, but also lived a life absolutely under God's government and I praise Him for His righteous judgment on those He called. Praise the Lord.
