The Righteousness of God!

The Righteousness of God…


There’s so much wickedness and evil that abounds.

Where in this world can the righteous be found?


On account of a righteousness man, this world was saved.

Because of Noah following God, a way of safety was “paved.”


On account of Lot’s righteousness, his family was spared

Because of Abrahams request…  God listened and cared.


Because of the righteousness of Jesus, we can live.

His life for our unworthy life, is what he freely gives!


Because of his righteousness , we have hope within!

Through the blood of Christ, we can be born again!


I need the righteousness of God to fill me inside.

I need his grace to remove all bitterness and pride!


I need the holiness of Christ to wash me clean!

He is my righteousness!  My everything!


The beauty and glory of God…  Nothing can compare!

The heavens declare his righteousness everywhere.


May the righteous words of God, in me, be “implanted.”

May I not take the wonderful grace of God for granted.


Thank you my Lord, for the work you want to do.

Please help me each day, to be more like YOU!


God’s ways are awesome,

 and his beauty is displayed!

Through Jesus Christ… 

A way to heaven has been made!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
