clothed in righteousness divine

May 20, 2011

No condemnation now I dread;
Jesus, and all in Him, is mine;
Alive in Him, my living Head,
And clothed in righteousness divine,
Bold I approach th’eternal throne,
And claim the crown, through Christ my own.
Bold I approach th’eternal throne,
And claim the crown, through Christ my own.

// Charles Wes­ley, Psalms and Hymns, 1738

Wesley clearly believed in the imputed righteousness of Christ to all believers.
