“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.
