Only By Grace



Not one thing could we ever do
To redeem our sinful soul;
God saves us by amazing grace...
And places us in His fold.
We may have done many good works,
But those deeds won’t get us in;
We could never do enough good
To remove the sin within...
It’s Only By Grace.

Friend, in God’s spiritual Kingdom,
Such abundant life we find;
We can live rejoicing right here…
All chains are broken that bind.
Thanks to the blood of Jesus Christ,
We’re freed from bondage of law;
And we now obey God’s commands
From a heart of love and awe…
It’s Only By Grace.

The life we live with our Shepherd
Is worth much more than fine gold;
For it’s a life of peace and joy—
Satisfaction for the soul.
Precious treasures everlasting,
Moth and rust cannot corrupt;
Oh, come and drink from His fountain,
He will fill your empty cup…
Only 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 2:8-9)
