HYMN 23. Third Part. C.M.
The Lord our righteousness. (cont.)

  4 Pardon, and peace, and lively hope
   To sinners now are giv'n;
And weeping saints shall change ere long,
   Their wilderness for heav'n.
  5 With joy we taste that manna now,
   Thy mercy scatters down;
We seal our humble vows to thee,
   And wait the promis'd crown.

HYMN 23. Fourth Part. L.M.
The excellencies of Christ.

  1 JOIN, all who love the Saviour's name,
To sing his everlasting fame;
Great God, prepare each heart and voice,
In him forever to rejoice.
  2 Of him what wondrous things are told!
In him what glories I behold!
For him I gladly all things leave;
To him, my soul, forever cleave!
  3 In him my treasure's all contain'd;
By him my feeble soul's sustain'd:
From him what favors I receive!
Thro' him I shall forever live.
  4 With him I daily love to walk;
Of him my soul delights to talk:
On him I cast my ev'ry care:
Like him one day I shall appear.
  5 Bless him, my soul, from day to day;
Trust him to lead thee on thy way;
Give him thy poor, weak, sinful heart;
With him O never, never part.
  6 Take him for strength and righteousness
Make him thy refuge in distress:
Love him above all earthly joy;
And him in ev'ry thing employ.

HYMN 23. Fourth Part. L.M.
The excellencies of Christ. (cont.)

  7 Praise him in cheerful, grateful songs;
To him your highest praise belongs!
Bless him, who doth your heav'n prepare;
And whom you'll praise forever there.

HYMN 23. Fifrth Part. L.M.
We are not accepted on account of the worthiness of our faith.

  1 BY faith in Christ we're justified,
Since 'tis by faith Christ is applied;
But not for faith, or any thing
We either suffer, do, or bring.
  2 Faith is the hand, that Christ receives,
And takes the treasures, which he gives;
But faith no merit can possess:
Christ is the Lord our righteousness.
  3 Jesus, our soul's delightful choice,
In thee believing, we rejoice;
Thy promises our hearts revive,
And keep our fainting faith alive.
  4 Do thou the languid spark inflame,
Reveal the glories of thy name!
Let thy imputed righteousness
Be all our trust, our joy and peace.

HYMN 24. First Part. L.M.
Our good works are no part of our righteousness before God.

  1 NO more, my God, I boast no more
Of all the duties I have done;
I quit the hopes I held before,
To trust the merits of thy Son.
  2 Now, for the love I bear his name,
What was my gain, I count my loss;
My former pride I call my shame,
And nail my glory to his cross.
  3 Yes; and I must and will esteem
All things but loss for Jesus' sake:
