Ezekiel 18:20 (Listen)

20 The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself.

(ESV)

Romans 4:5 (Listen)

And to the one who does not work but believes in1 him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness,

Hymn: WS 779, st. 1-3: Redeemed, Restored, Forgiven

Hymnary.org

1. Redeemed,restored, forgiven  
Through Jesus’ precious blood, 
Heirs of His home in heaven  
Oh, praise our pard’ning God! 
Praise Him in tuneful measures  
Who gave His Son to die; 
Praise Him whose sev’n fold treasures  
Enrich and sanctify. 

2. Once on the dreary mountain  
We wandered far and wide, 
Far from the cleansing fountain,  
Far from the pierced side. 
But Jesus sought and found us;  
Our many sins He bore. 
With cords of love He bound us  
To Him forevermore. 

3. Dear Master, Yours the glory  
Of each recovered soul. 
Ah, who can tell the story  
Of love that made us whole? 
Not ours, not ours the merit;  
To You alone the praise! 
Give us a thankful spirit  
To serve You all our days.
