Saviour divine, whose name we know,
 
In whom alone we trust,
 
Thou art the Lord our Righteousness,
 
Thou art Thy people's boast.
Matthew 1:21; Psalm 9:10; Jeremiah 23:6; 1 Corinthians 1:30
2
The guilty soul, by sin defiled,
 
The conscience sore oppressed,
 
In Thee believing stands approved,
 
And finds abiding rest.
Romans 5:12; Titus 1:15; Romans 16:10; Matthew 11:28

To Thee, our great redeeming Lord,
 
What lasting thanks we owe,
 
For raising sinners to such joys
 
From depths of endless woe.
Titus 2:14; Revelation 5:9; Psalm 40:2-3
