Sunday Hymnary: “Jehovah Tsidkenu” by Robert Murray M’Cheyne

I once was a stranger
To grace and to God,
I knew not my danger
And felt not my load;
Though friends spoke in rapture
O Christ on the tree,
Jehovah Tsidkenu
Was nothing to me.

Like tears from the daughters
Of Zion that roll,
I wept when the waters
Went over His soul;
Yet thought not that my sins
Had nailed to the tree,
Jehovah Tsidkenu
Twas nothing to me.

When free grace awoke me
By light from on high,
Then legal fears shook me,
I trembled to die;
No refuge, no safety,
In self could I see,
Jehovah Tsidkenu
My Saviour must be.

My terrors all vanished
Before the sweet name,
My guilty fears banished,
With boldness I came
To drink at the fountain,
Life-giving and free,
Jehovah Tsidkenu
Is all things to me.
