text based on Romans 1:8-17

Paul introduces and summarizes the subject of the book of Romans in chapter 1 verses 16 and 17. "Faith, First and Last" stays close to his words to allow for a sung affirmation. It's included in the collection Singing the New Testament.

The Gospel of Christ is the power of God,
which raises us from sin and death;
because this good news reveals God's righteousness,
which is founded on faith, first and last.

And we believe by faith what was revealed by faith.
We are made right by faith; live our lives in faith.
Righteousness springs from faith,
and it brings more faith.
We're founded on faith, first and last.
