Hymn 35 part 1

 Faith the way to salvation.
1:16; Eph.
Not by the laws of innocence Can Adam's sons arrive at heav'n; New works can give us no pretence To have our ancient sins forgiv'n.
Not the best deeds that we have done Can make a wounded conscience whole; Faith is the grace, and faith alone, That flies to Christ, and saves the soul.
Lord, I believe thy heav'nly word, Fain would I have my soul renewed; I mourn for sin, and trust the Lord To have it pardoned and subdued.
O may thy grace its power display, Let guilt and death no longer reign; Save me in thine appointed way, Nor let my humble faith be vain.
