"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 22:1. 1-16. First Part. C. M,
1 "Why has my God my soul forsook,
2 Tho' 'tis thy chief delight to dwell
3 Our fathers trusted in thy name,
4 Shaking the head they pass me by,
5 But thou art he who form'd my flesh
6 Why will my Father hide his face,
7 Behold thy darling left among
8 From earth and hell my sorrows meet
9 Yet if thy sovereign hand let loose
10 My God, if possible it be,
11 My heart dissolves with pangs unknown
12 Father, I give my spirit up;
Psalm 22:2. 20 21 27-31. 2d Part. C. M.
1 "Now from the roaring lion's rage,
2 Thus did our suffering Saviour pray,
3 Great was the victory of his death,
4 A numerous offspring must arise
5 The meek and humble soul shall see
6 The isles shall know the righteousness
Psalm 22:3. L. M.
1 Now let our mournful songs record
2 The Jews beheld him thus forlorn,
3 "This is the man did once pretend
4 Barbarous people! cruel priests!
5 They wound his head, his hands, his feet,
6 But God, his Father, heard his cry:
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"
"My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent. But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them. They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded." Psa 22:1-5 KJV
