Paraphrase 46 Romans 3:19-22


Paraphrase 46, (Romans 3:19-22)

Tune: Martyrdom

Vain are the hopes the sons of men
On their own works have built:
Their hearts by nature all unclean,
And all their actions guilt.



Let Jew and Gentile stop their mouths,
Without a murmuring word;
And the whole race of Adam stand
Guilty before the Lord.

In vain we ask God’s righteous law
To justify us now;
Since to convince and to condemn
Is all the law can do.

Jesus! how glorious is thy grace!
When in thy name we trust,
Our faith receives a righteousness
That makes the sinner just.

Isaac Watts

From → Evangelism, Puritans
