The gift of righteousness

1
The gift of righteousness is measured in abundance,
The depth of His love I’ll never understand.
His love reaches me and you;
His mercy goes farther too.
The One on the throne of God is called the Lamb.
  So, why not open up and call His name, “Oh Lord!”
Find your spirit where His grace has been outpoured.
Call His name, taste His grace, exercise before His face
He’s longing and yearning.
He’s hoping and waiting.
He’s ever desiring for you...
To turn to Him.
2
He knows your deepest thought,
   Your every situation.
He understands your heart,
He knows your history.
There’s nothing in His way,
He’s just waiting for you to say
“Lord Jesus, my wandering heart
   I give to Thee.”

This is one of my favorites for many reasons. I enjoy the first line, "The gift of righteousness is measured in abundance." Praise the Lord!

I also enjoyed how much love He has for us!

I love this song because in it I can muse how much the Lord really loves me and you, all of us. He's always been longing and yearning and hoping and waiting and ever desiring for me and you to turn to Him. So let us make the Lord happy too and say to Him ... "Lord my wandering heart I give to Thee."

This song reminded me of Romans 5:17: For if by the one man's offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.

Every time when I sing this song, it touches my inner being ... "He knows my deepest thought, my every situation. He understands my heart, He knows my history. There is nothing in His way, He's just waiting for me to say 'Lord Jesus, my wandering heart I give to Thee.'"

Before I got baptized, I had no one to turn to, simply because no one could really understand my thought. Once I was singing this hymn, I suddenly realized that my Lord Jesus is the very person that really knew everything about me, He knew my deepest thought and all my history, and He and I are in such a close and intimate relationship! He must be the One I can turn to all the time, for He has really known what I am going through. Praise the Lord!!!
