1
JESUS, how glorious is Thy grace!
When in Thy Name we trust,
Our faith receives a righteousness
That makes the sinner just.
2
Vain are the hopes the sons of men
Upon their works have builts;
Their hearts by nature are unclean,
Their actions full of guilt.
3
Silent let Jew and Gentile stand,
Without one vaunting word;
And, humbled low, confess their guilt
Before the righteous Lord.
4
No hope can on the law be built
Of justifying grace;
The law that shows the sinner's guilt
Condemns him to his face.
5
With Christ the Lord we died to sin;
With Him to life we rise -
To life which, now begun on earth,
Is perfect in the skies.

I. Watts
