Therefore, since we’ve been justified
By faith, we’ve peace with God, and side
With Him in Christ, through whom we gain
Access by faith, and we’ll remain
In this same grace in which we stand.
With joy we hope to reach the land
Where God his glory will display
When darkness changes into day.
And sufferings, too, we greet with cheer
Because they make us persevere
And mold our character, and then
This character builds hope again,
A hope that disappoints us ne’er;
For through his Spirit, which is e’er
Our portion, did our gracious God
His love so richly spread abroad.
“Romans 5 in Poetry”, William Hendriksen (verses 1‐5)

Romans 5:1-5 ESV
