HYMN 94

C. M.

Justification by faith, not by works. Rom. 3:19-22.

363

Vain are the hopes the sons of men

On their own works have built;

Their hearts by nature all unclean,

And all their actions guilt.

Let Jew and Gentile stop their mouths

Without a murm'ring word,

And the whole race of Adam stand

Guilty before the Lord.

In vain we ask God's righteous law

To justify us now;

Since to convince and to condemn

Is all the law can do.

Jesus, how glorious is thy grace!

When in thy name we trust,

Our faith receives a righteousness

That makes the sinner just.
