Grace and Justice


God of blessings, God of woe,
Let your grace and justice flow.
We deserve your wrath, your doom--
Yet you tell us you've made room:
Jesus Christ has paid our debt:
Died so we have no guilt left.
Then you did just what you said--
Raised him, victor from the dead.
By your grace our faith is born,
Born to grow with each new morn.

Hate evil, and love good, and establish justice in the gate; it may be that the LORD, the God of hosts, will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.  (Amos 5:15 ESV)

As Titus 3:5 says, "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;" I am so glad he loved us that much.
