Saved By Grace
For by grace are ye saved through
faith; and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God: Not of works,
lest any man should boast. Eph. 2:8
I know I'm going to heaven
Whenever I leave this place,
But not because I am worthy---
I'm a sinner, saved by grace!
Not for my works, or I might boast;
Not for anything I have done:
God loved this old wretched sinner,
And so He sent His only Son.....
Christ Jesus paid my sin-price,
He hung on that cross, in my place;
He offered me mercy and pardon,
And saved me, by His precious grace.
I never deserved my Lord's kindness,
For in me there was no good at all;
But He gave my life a new Spirit,
When on His dear name I did call.
Then all my guilt and condemnation,
Disappeared without any trace,
When I put my faith in Christ Jesus,
And He saved my soul by His grace!
He loved me! That's why He saved me,
And friend, I'm telling you true:
If He could save an old sinnner like ME,
He can save a poor sinner like you!
To show us just how much He loves us,
He bore all our shame and disgrace;
Put your faith in Jesus, and trust Him,
And be saved by His precious grace!
