Justified by Faith

When I saw that they walked,
Not upright to the truth;
The slander that they talked,
Was so rude and uncouth.

But we are Jews by birth,
Not Gentile sinners;
Living here on the earth,
Which has made us winners.

No one is justified.
By the works of the Law;
But through the crucified,
That Christ has cured the flaw.

In Christ we have believed,
Justice by faith in Christ;
Salvation is received,
Honoring is sufficed.

In our endeavor,
As justified in Christ;
Because our error,
Were found to be enticed.

Christ is not a sinner,
Unlike as what we are;
Being a beginner,
As a babe with a scar.

Because if I rebuild,
As to what I tore down;
Confession has fulfilled,
So that we will not drown.

For through the law I died,
That I might live to God;
As for the crucified,
I will honor and laud.

No longer I who live,
But with Christ within me;
Because God did forgive,
For the iniquity.

The life that I now live,
By a faith in the Son;
With the love that I give,
For salvation had won.

I do not nullify,
Through the grace of the Lord;
For I cannot deny.
Never to be ignored.
