1 Believers own they are but blind
They know themselves Unwise:
But Wisdom in the Lord they find,
Who opens all our Eyes.
2 Unrighteous are they all, when try'd;
But God himself declares,
In Jesus they are justify'd;
His Righteousness is theris.
3 That we're Unholy needs no Proof;
We sorely feel the Fall:
But Christ has Holiness enough
To sanctify us all.
4 Expos'd by sin to God's just Wrath,
We look to Christ and View
Redemption in his Blood by Faith;
And full Redemption too.
5 Some this, some that, good Virtue teach,
To rectify the Soul;
But we first after Jesus reach,
And richly grasp the whole.
6 To Jesus join'd we all that's good,
From him our Head, derive;
We eat his Flesh, we drink his Blood,
And by and in him live.
