My righteousness comes, from Jesus Christ
Who bled and died the perfect price
Shout it from the housetop, beat the drums
From Jesus Christ, my righteousness comes

My self-righteousness, but filthy rags
Doing right and good sorely lags
'Twas revealed to me in quietness
But filthy rags, my righteousness

Upon the rugged cross at Calvary
Christ died to restore earth's anarchy
In our hearts we must not toss
At Calvary, upon the rugged cross

That horrible death, the bloody scene
The self-righteous haters sorely mean
Crucify Him, escaped upon their breath
The bloody scene, that horrible death

To crucify Him with my thoughts
Help dear Jesus to clean these spots
Let every thought be a hymn, not
With my thoughts to crucify Him

God be praised and thanked for His imputed righteousness to sinners like us, so we can be justified by His grace. Thanks for sharing your talent. Keep writing God-exalting poems for His glory. God bless you.
