Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In his days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely. And this is the name by which he will be called: ‘The LORD is our righteousness. (Jeremiah 23:5-6 ESV)
Hymn ELH 55:1,5 Crown Him with Many Crowns
Crown Him with many crowns,
The Lamb upon His throne;
Hark how the heav’nly anthem drowns
All music but its own.
Awake, my soul, and sing
Of Him who died for thee,
And hail Him as thy matchless King
Through all eternity.
Crown Him the Lord of Heav’n,
Enthroned in worlds above,
Crown Him the King to whom is giv’n
The wondrous name of Love.
Crown Him with many crowns
As thrones before Him fall;
Crown Him, ye kings, with many crowns,
For He is King of all.
Heavenly Father, thank You for sending Jesus to be my righteousness, earning my salvation for me. In the name of my Savior and my King, Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.
