How to seek approval from God,
Of course is to honor and laud;
But it also has been made plain,
What Moses taught during his reign.
Plus the prophets also of old,
Through our faith as I am told;
In Jesus Christ we do receive,
Blessing from God if we believe.
No difference between people,
When telling them of the Gospel;
Because everyone has sinned,
Since no one has been disciplined.
Each one of us has fallen short,
And will be convicted in court;
For as we hear in the story,
No one can obtain His glory.
An act of kindness has been given,
Unto us from up in Heaven;
Through the price paid by Jesus Christ,
To set us free when sacrificed.
Because God has already shown,
That Christ sits on the mercy throne;
His approval through faith given,
In the blood of Christ is driven.
In His patience God has waited,
With sins committed and hated;
For His approval to display;
To all of us in present day.
So I would surely ever doubt,
We have nothing to brag about;
Now with faith bragging not allowed,
Since humbleness has been endowed.
