Hymn 109

by
 The value of Christ, and his righteousness.
Phil.
3:7-9.
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.
Now, for the love I bear his name, What was my gain I count my loss; My former pride I call my shame, And nail my glory to his cross.
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! 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.
