Jesus will bring peace. His reign shall end the woes and discords of the chosen people. Sin being wholly removed, peace will be restored and established for ever. Are we each of us looking to the Lord Jesus for all things? Do we trust in him as our Advocate, and is his righteousness our glorious dress?
Guilty we plead before thy throne,
And low in dust we lie,
Till Jesus stretch his gracious arm
To bring the guilty nigh.
The sins of one most righteous day
Might plunge us in despair;
Yet all the crimes of numerous years
Shall our great Surety clear.
That spotless robe, which he hath wrought,
Shall deck us all around;
Nor by the piercing eye of God
One blemish shall be found.
