« Prev All praise to Christ the Righteous Next »

Morgan Rhys

In the two following verses we seem to hear the far-off noise of battle--a dim echo from the theological conflicts of bygone days, when the term 'Antinomian' was a favourite missile to hurl at an opponent.

All praise to Christ the Righteous

Who for my sin has died,

And from the grave has risen

That I be justified:

Upon His throne of pity

He intercedes for me,

And names His life of sorrow,

His death upon the tree.

Now in the face of Moses,

No friend shall have my plea:

But Jesus Christ the Righteous

Who died for one like me!

In Jordan's swelling torrent,

Or in that 'day to come,'

I know His hand will hold me,

And safely bring me home.

'Now in the face of Moses,' has in it the martial ring of some famous old battle-cry.
