The Lamentation of a Sinner

I know, O my Lord, thy eyes look upon my faith. St Paul saith “we be justified by the faith in Christ, and not by the deeds of the law,” for “if righteousness come by the law, then Christ died in vain.” St Paul meaneth not, here, a dead, human, historical faith, gotten by human industry; but a supernal lively faith, which worketh by charity, as he himself plainly expresseth. This dignity of faith is no derogation to good works, for out of this faith springeth all good works.
