You are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption.”
I Corinthians 1:30

Made by the Father’s gift and grace
Our wisdom true, O Christ, appear,
Our meritorious righteousness,
From guilt and curse and wrath to clear;
Our holiness, thyself impart,
Absorb whate’er is I in thine,
And stamp the image on our heart,
The nature, and the name divine.

Charles Wesley, Short Hymns on Select Passages of the Holy Scriptures (1762)
