“Without me ye can do nothing.” John 15. 5
W. Gadsby 8s
United to Jesus, the Vine,
We’ve life, strength, and righteousness too,
But this he will teach us in time,
Without him we nothing can do.
Our hope of performing what’s right,
And strictly obeying our God,
If not wholly built on his might,
Will leave us exposed to his rod.
Unless he uphold by his grace,
We sink under Satan and sin,
And plunge into shame and disgrace,
Nor can we deliverance obtain;
We neither can hope nor believe,
Nor pray in a time of distress,
But as we from Jesus receive
The fruits of his own righteousness.
