The Value of Christ’s Righteousness. Rom. 3. 27

I. Watts                                    L.M.

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 but 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;
O may my soul be found in him,
And of his righteousness partake!

4
The best obedience of my hands
Dares not appear before thy throne;
But faith can answer thy demands,
By pleading what my Lord has done.
