Salvation is for ever nigh
The souls that fear and trust the Lord
And grace descending from on high
Fresh hopes of glory shall afford.
Mercy and truth on earth are met
Since Christ the Lord came down from Heavín;
By His obedience so complete,
Justice is pleased, and peace is givín.
Now truth and honor shall abound,
Religion dwell on earth again,
And heavínly influence bless the ground
In our Redeemerís gentle reign.
His righteousness is gone before
To give us free access to God;
Our wandíring feet shall stray no more,
But mark His steps and keep the road.
