The Heritage of the Righteous

“Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage forever:
for they are the rejoicing of my heart.”Psalm 119:111
“... this is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.”Isaiah 54:17

“For thou, old Lord, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.”Psalm 61:5
The heritage of the righteous
Cannot be compared
With the heathen all around us
Their inheritance prepared.
-
Though they labor for their riches
We, for truth and Christ, have sought
And forever we’ll rejoice
In our generous, heavenly lot.
-
Naught of earth can satisfy,
No estate of this world can out-weigh
What we’re promised that’s eternal.
We have chosen a better Way.
-
Though our culture and tradition
Mock our portion yet unseen,
We can rest with Christ’s endowment.
Redemption is our legacy.
-
With courage, and with honor,
Faithful men through ages served.
Holiness through persecution -
True commitment unreserved.
-
For the heirship of the saved
And of those who fear God’s name,
Is abundant life with Jesus
And eternal life to claim.
-
As servants to the King of Kings,
Be loyal to his reign.
This our heritage, and challenge:
"All for Heaven's gain."

  1. Please update the scripture reference I believe it should be Psalm 119: 111 not Psalm 119:11. Be blessed. Enjoyed reading your page.
