Hymn: TLH 377, st. 2,6,9: Salvation unto us has Come

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


2. What God did in His Law demand 
And none to Him could render 
Caused wrath and woe on every hand 
For man, the vile offender. 
Our flesh has not those pure desires 
The spirit of the Law requires, 
And lost is our condition. 

6. Since Christ hath full atonement made 
And brought to us salvation, 
Each Christian therefore may be glad 
And build on this foundation. 
Thy grace alone, dear Lord, I plead, 
Thy death is now my life indeed, 
For Thou hast paid my ransom. 

9. Faith clings to Jesus’ cross alone 
And rests in Him unceasing; 
And by its fruits true faith is known, 
With love and hope increasing. 
Yet faith alone doth justify, 
Works serve thy neighbor and supply 
The proof that faith is living.
