How can a man, be justified with God?
And how much less, a weak and lowly worm
Egressing, vile, from earth's putrescent sod
Thence, to corruption's cheerless realm, return
Thy will, the holy angels, acquiesce
Thy dreadful fear and sovereignty, confess
The heavenly host, with all their bright allure
In radiant, beauteous lustre, fail to shine
The very stars, their glory, stands, impure
Compared, to Thy great glory, all divine
The moon above, shall surely wax and wane
But Thou, oh God, art evermore the same!
How can a man be cleansed and justified?
'Tis only through the efficacious blood
Of thine own Son, to sinful hearts, applied
The washing of the water, by the Word
In faith, I to that fountain would draw nigh
My heart, in love and mercy, purify
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: and if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.' (1 Jn. 5:14-15)
'Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.' (Jer. 29:12-13)
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
