O God of Grace and Righteousness



Verse 1

O God of grace and righteousness,

Hear and attend when I complain;

Thou hast enlarged me in distress,

Bow down a gracious ear again.


Verse 2

Ye sons of men, in vain ye try

To turn my glory into shame;

How long will scoffers love to lie,

And dare reproach my Savior’s Name?


Verse 3

Know that the Lord divides His saints

From all the tribes of men beside;

He hears the cry of penitents,

For the dear sake of Christ that died.


Verse 4

When our obedient hands have done

A thousand works of righteousness

We put our trust in God alone,

And glory in His pard’ning grace.


Verse 5

Let the unthinking many say,

“Who will bestow some earthly good?”

But Lord, Thy light and love we pray;

Our souls desire this heav’nly food.


Verse 6

Then shall my cheerful powers rejoice,

At grace and favors so divine;

Nor will I change my happy choice

For all their corn, and all their wine.
