"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 18:1. 1-6 15-18. First Part. L. M.
1 Thee will I love, O Lord, my strength,
2 Death, and the terrors of the grave
3 I saw the opening gates of hell,
4 In my distress I call'd 'my God,'
5 [With speed he flew to my relief,
6 Temptations fled at his rebuke,
7 Great were my fears, my foes were great,
8 My song for ever shall record
Psalm 18:2. 20-26. Second Part. L. M.
1 Lord, thou hast seen my soul sincere,
2 Since I have learnt thy holy ways,
3 What sore temptations broke my rest!
4 That sin which close besets me still,
5 [With an impartial hand, the Lord
6 The just and pure shall ever say,
Psalm 18:3. 30 31 34 35 46. 3d Part. L. M.
1 Just are thy ways, and true thy word,
2 'Tis he that girds me with his might,
3 He lives (and blessed be my rock!)
4 Before the scoffers of the age,
5 To David and his royal seed
Psalm 18:4. First Part. C. M.
1 We love thee, Lord, and we adore,
2 We fly to our eternal rock,
3 When God, our leader, shines in arms,
4 He rides upon the winged wind,
5 He speaks, and at his fierce rebuke,
6 He forms our generals for the field,
7 [He arms our captains to the fight,
8 Oft has the Lord whole nations blest
Psalm 18:5. Second Part. C. M.
1 To thine almighty arm we owe
2 'Tis by thine aid our troops prevail,
3 How have we chas'd them thro' the field,
4 In vain to idol-saints they cry,
5 The Rock of Israel ever lives,
6 On kings that reign as David did,
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"
"I will love thee, O LORD, my strength. The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid. The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me. In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears." Psa 18:1-6 KJV
