"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 42:1. 1-5. First Part.
1 With earnest longings of the mind,

Psalm 42:2. 6-11. Second Part.
1 My spirit sinks within me, Lord,
2 Huge troubles, with tumultuous noise,
3 Yet will the Lord command his love,
4 I'll cast myself before his feet,
5 I'll chide my heart that sinks so low,
6 Thy light and truth shall guide me still,
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"
"As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God? My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God? When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday. Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance." Psa 42:1-5 KJV
