Not By Works - By Grace!



It’s not by works of righteousness
That we’ll enter heaven’s door,
For we must have God’s forgiveness
To live with Him evermore.
Only by the shed blood of Christ
Are the portals open wide,
And only by God’s grace through faith
Does His Spirit in us reside…
Not By Works – By Grace!

We could dot each “i” cross each “t”
And do everything just right,
But our own righteous works are rags
Apart from God’s holy Light.
Friend, is His Light living in you?
Has He washed away your sin?
Then you are prepared for Glory
And one day you shall enter in…
Not By Works – By Grace!



“Not by works of righteousness which we have done,
but according to his mercy he saved us,
by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour.”
“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.”
(Tit. 3:5-6; Eph. 2:8-9)
