Fruits of Righteousness
The fruits of righteousness flow forth
From a heart made pure and true –
A heart of love and compassion,
Forgiven and made anew –
A heart that’s filled with the Spirit
And ready to serve the King,
Unashamed to tell the whole world…
Of the joy the Lord can bring.
The fruits of righteousness are found
In people like you and me –
Simple folks, surrendered to God,
Having come to Calvary –
Folks now wanting to live for Christ,
A clean life, holy and true,
Serving the Master every day…
Pleasing Him in all they do.
The fruits of righteousness are ours
As we bow before God’s Son,
It is thru His shed blood alone
We become the Father’s own.
As we are humbled and repent,
We receive His holiness,
And as Jesus Christ lives within…
He is our Righteousness.
Oh, may we work while there is time,
Using the talents God gives,
And may our works flow from the heart…
Where our loving Savior lives.
We have no other righteousness,
Only Christ our Lord and King,
Living in Him, and He in us…
Fruits of Righteousness are seen.
“For he hath made him to be sin for us…
that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
(II Co 5:21)
