Seite 522 - Bow down, dear Land, for thou hast found release! Thy God, in these distempered days, Hath taught thee the sure wisdom of His ways, And through thine enemies hath wrought thy peace ! Bow down in prayer and praise ! No poorest in thy borders but may now Lift to the juster skies a man's enfranchised brow.
Seite 731 - Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
Seite 729 - Forasmuch as we have heard, that certain which went out from us have troubled you with words, subverting your souls, saying, Ye must be circumcised, and keep the law; to whom we gave no such commandment...
Seite 731 - Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
