+ 27.225 MHz 118: Righteousness By Works? Me? I Would Never Make It

Me?---the chiefest of jerks,

nor can I depend on my own works

to try to achieve

assurance of Salvation.

Who knows how much is enough?
The harrowing calculation---

in hopes of avoiding damnation---

would be rather tought.

Like in grade school, I would fall short.

But my fear is fully diminished

because, in Christ, redemption is finished;

and, by the Father's imputation,

my good report

is entered in the Book of Life,

despite the wishful strife

raised by the foe's incessant accusation,

before he receives unending immolation.
