"Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law." Rom 3:27-28
Excerpt (Hymn) From
Psalm 1:1, Common Metre
1 Blest is the man who shuns the place
2 But in the statutes of the Lord
3 [He like a plant of generous kind,
4 Green as the leaf and ever fair
5 Not so the impious and unjust;
6 Sinners in judgment shall not stand
7 His eye beholds the path they tread,
Psalm 1:2. S. M.
1 The man is ever blest
2 But makes the Law of God
3 He like a tree shall thrive,
4 Not so th' ungodly race,
5 How will they bear to stand
6 He knows, and he approves
Psalm 1:3. L. M.
1 Happy the man whose cautious feet
2 He loves t' employ his morning light
3 He like a plant by gentle streams,
4 But sinners find their counsels crost;
5 In vain the rebel seeks to stand
6 Straight is the way my saints have trod,
Hymn by Isaac Watts, excerpted from "The Psalms of David, Imitated in the Language of the New Testament, and Applied to the Christian State and Worship"
"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish." Psa 1:1-6 KJV
