“The just shall live by faith.” Rom. 1. 17; Heb. 10. 38

W. Gadsby    S.M.

1
The just by faith shall live,
Nor fear the powers of hell;
All blessings that a God can give,
In Christ most richly dwell.

2
By faith in Jesus’ blood,
The just shall live indeed;
Shall have a settled peace with God,
And from their sins be freed.

3
When sense and reason fail,
And all things dark appear,
By faith, the just shall say, ’Tis well,
Jehovah will appear.

4
If providence should frown,
And crosses still increase;
By faith, the just shall live and own
God their salvation is.

5
By faith in Christ, as God,
As Prophet, Priest, and King,
The just shall live, and live to prove,
That death has lost its sting.
