Hymn/Song Information

Vain are the hopes the sons of men upon

Vain are the hopes the sons of men
upon their works have built;
Their hearts by nature are unclean,
their actions full of guilt.

Silent let Jew and Gentile stand,
without one vaunting word,
And, humbled low, confess their guilt
before heavínís righteous Lord.

No hope can on the law be built
of justifying grace;
The law, that shows the sinnerís guilt,
condemns him to his face.

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