Romans 4:3-5
3 For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was [a]accounted to him for righteousness.” 4 Now to him who works, the wages are not counted [b]as grace but as debt.

5 But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness,

Hymn: TLH 375, st. 3-4 :
If Thy Beloved Son, O God — Organ Audio

3. I trust in Him with all my heart;
Now all my sorrow ceases;
His words abiding peace impart,
His blood from guilt releases.
Free grace through Him I now obtain;
He washes me from every stain,
And pure I stand before Him.

4. All righteousness by works is vain,
The Law brings condemnation;
True righteousness by faith I gain,
Christ’s work is my salvation.
His death, that perfect sacrifice,
Has paid the all-sufficient price;
In Him my hope is anchored.
