By Grace Alone
By grace alone,
not of me . . .
in Christ through faith
is why I’m free.
By grace alone,
not of my hand
and so I humbly receive
By grace alone,
not of my deed
the Word is sufficient
for want and need.
By grace alone,
not of my thought
God and favor
cannot be bought.
By grace alone,
not of my doing
a gift in measure
worth my pursuing.
By grace alone,
not of me . . .
on the cross of Calvary!
“For by grace you have been saved through faith,
