Hymn/Song Information

LAW AND GRACE




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 murm'ring 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.
