"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 12:1. L. M.
1 Lord, if thou dost not soon appear,
2 The whole discourse, when neighbours meet,
3 But lips, that with deceit abound,
4 "Yet shall our words be free," they cry,
5 The Lord who sees the poor opprest,
6 Thy word, O Lord, tho' often try'd,
7 Thy grace shall in the darkest hour
Psalm 12:2. C. M.
1 Help, Lord, for men of virtue fail,
2 Their oaths and promises they break,
3 If we reprove some hateful lie,
4 Scoffers appear on every side,
5 Lord, when iniquities abound,
6 Is not thy chariot hastening on?
7 "Yes," saith the Lord, "now will I rise,
8 Thy word, like silver seven times try'd,
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"
"Help, LORD; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men. They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak. The LORD shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things: Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us? For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the LORD; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him. The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever." Psa 12:1-7 KJV
