Hymn 84

 Salvation, righteousness, and strength in Christ.
Jehovah speaks! let Isr'el hear; Let all the earth rejoice and fear, While God's eternal Son proclaims His sovereign honors and his names.
"I am the last, and I the first, The Savior God, and God the just; There's none beside pretends to show Such justice and salvation too.
["Ye that in shades of darkness dwell, Just on the verge of death and hell, Look up to me from distant lands; Light, life, and heav'n are in my hands.
"I by my holy name have sworn, Nor shall the word in vain return; To me shall all things bend the knee, And every tongue shall swear to me.
] "In me alone shall men confess Lies all their strength and righteousness; But such as dare despise my name, I'll clothe them with eternal shame.
"In me, the Lord, shall all the seed Of Isr'el from their sins be freed; And by their shining graces prove Their int'rest in my pard'ning love.
