I Boast No More

“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.

Ys, 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.”

 

-Words by Isaac Watts, Music by Sandra McCracken

This song rang so true to me at church tonight. I hope you find truth and praise within its words.
