Boast Not Then, my Soul!

Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.

Romans 3:27

Whence cometh strength, my soul, to fight thy sins,
except the gracious Lord calls thee to Him?
Except thou hadst, by Christ, been made alive,
O, thou art dead, and powerless to strive.

What strength hast thou within to fight thy sins
except for strength that comes from Christ the King?
Within thyself, there is no strength at all;
before the fiery arrows, thou shalt fall.

O boast not then, my soul, when thou hast won,
for only in the Lord art thou strong.
