“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:” Romans 3:10.
(Enjoy the song)
I searched the world for one, who did understand,
Or, with his heart sought God, and found not a man.
Paths of righteousness they left, for their own way.
All remain unprofitable until this very day.
Mouths are open sepulchers; tongues filled with deceit.
Venom, under their lips, and hatred of a white-hot heat.
Hellbent on destruction, and misery in their ways.
Paths of peace unknown, no fear of God doth faze.
Hearts without understanding, mouths with cursing filled.
Feet swift to shed blood, no fear of God revealed.
Unprofitable, are they all, the righteous, I find none.
This is man’s condition, none good, no not one.
Every mouth will stop, they’re all guilty before God
Unless grace intervenes, a hopeless path they trod
There’s righteousness provided, freely through His Son
And those who come to Him, He rejects, no, not one
