"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 17:1. 13 &c. S. M.
1 Arise, my gracious God,
2 Behold the sinner dies,
3 Then let his pride advance,
4 I shall behold the face
5 There's a new heaven begun,
Psalm 17:2. L. M.
1 Lord, I am thine; but thou wilt prove
2 Their hope and portion lies below;
3 What sinners value, I resign;
4 This life's a dream, an empty show;
5 O glorious hour! O blest abode!
6 My flesh shall slumber in the ground,
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"
"Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips. Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal. Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress. Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer. Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not. I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech. Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them. Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings" Psa 17:1-8 KJV
