! Tmf VAIN are the hopes the sons of men 4 f Jesus, how glorious is Thy grace Upon their works have built ;

When in Thy name we trust, P Their hearts by nature are unclean, Our faith receives a righteousness Their actions full of guilt.

That makes the sinner just. 2 mf Silent let Jew and Gentile stand, 5o And shall we then go on to sin, Without one vaunting word,

That grace may more abound? P And, humbled low, confess their guilt cresGreat God, forbid that such a thought Before heaven's righteous Lord.

Should in our breast be found ! 3mf No hope can on the law be built 6mf With Christ the Lord we died to sin; Of justifying grace ;

cres With Him to life we rise, The law that shows the sinner's guilt To life which, now begun on earth, p Condemns him to his face.

Is perfect in the skies.
7 P Too long enthralled to Satan's sway,

cres We now are slaves no more ;
f For Christ ha:h vanquished death and sin,

Our freedom to restore. Amen.

And oh, come not doubting thus, There's a kindness in His justice, cres But with faith that trusts more bravely Which is more than liberty.

His huge tenderness for us. 4 € There is no place where earth's sorrows 8 f If our love were but more simple,

Are more felt than up in heaven ; We should take Him at His word; There is no place where earth's failings And our lives would be all sunshine Have such kindly judgment given. In the sweetness of our Lord. Amen.
