Psalm 85:2 Second Part [Salvation Is For Ever Nigh] by Isaac Watts

Psalm 85:2. 9 etc. Second Part
Salvation by Christ.

Salvation is for ever nigh
The souls that fear and trust the Lord;
And grace descending from on high,
Fresh hopes of glory shall afford.

Mercy and truth on earth are met,
Since Christ the Lord came down from heaven;
By his obedience, so complete,
Justice is pleas’d, and peace is given.

Now truth and honour shall abound,
Religion dwell on earth again,
And heavenly influence bless the ground
In our Redeemer’s gentle reign.

His righteousness is gone before
To give us free access to God;
Our wandering feet shall stray no more,
But mark his steps and keep the road.
