Hymn/Song Information

SALVATION NOT BY WORKS




How shall vile man approach his God,
Before his righteous throne appear?
Will offerings for his sins atone,
Or make a guilty conscience clear?


Will slaughtered rams or flowing oil,
Appease the anger of a God;
Or will a first-born sacrificed,
Avert the terror of his rod?


Not all our duties, prayers or tears,
Can speak the smallest sin forgiven;
Nor pains nor sufferings eer suffice,
To cleanse or make us mete for heaven.


Not all the righteousness of men
Will find acceptance in his eyes;
But humble, broken, contrite hearts,
The Lord of hosts will not despise.
