SALVATION OF FAITH




‘Tis faith that lays the sinner low,
And covers him with shame;
Renouncing all self-righteousness,
It trusts in Jesus’ name.


Faith works with power, but will not plead
The best of works when done;
It knows no other ground of trust,
But in the Lord alone.


It gives no title, but receives,
No blessing it procures!
Yet where it truly is possessed,
All blessings it ensures.


Its sole dependance and its stay
Is Jesus’ righteousness;
‘Tis thus salvation is by faith,
That it may be of grace.


The more this principle prevails,
The more is grace adored;
No glory it assumes, but gives
All glory to the Lord.
