"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 36:1. 5-9. L. M.
1 High in the heavens, eternal God,
2 For ever firm thy justice stands,
3 Thy providence is kind and large,
4 My God! how excellent thy grace,
5 From the provisions of thy house
6 Life, like a fountain rich and free
Psalm 36:2. 1 2 5 6 7 9 C. M.
1 While men grow bold in wicked ways!
2 Their thoughts and ways at once declare
3 What strange self-flattery blinds their eyes!
4 Thy justice shall maintain its throne,
5 Above the heavens' created rounds,
6 Safety to man thy goodness brings,
7 [From thee, when creature-streams run low,
8 Tho' all created light decay,
Psalm 36:3. 1-7. S. M
1 When man grows bold in sin
2 [He walks awhile conceal'd
3 His heart is false and foul,
4 He plots upon his bed
5 But there's a dreadful God,
6 His truth transcends the sky;
7 How excellent his love,
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"
"The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful. The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good. He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil. Thy mercy, O LORD, is in the heavens; and thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds. Thy righteousness is like the great mountains; thy judgments are a great deep: O LORD, thou preservest man and beast. How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures. For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light. O continue thy lovingkindness unto them that know thee; and thy righteousness to the upright in heart. Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me." Psa 36:1-11 KJV
