Not By My Works


All my works could never buy
A crumb of what you offer
Freely as a gift of grace
To all who trust the Savior.

Lord, you knew my weight of guilt
And gave your Son to bear it.
Now it's gone, and I am free
To serve you, clean, forever.

Why your love extends to me
Is more than I can fathom.
I just praise you day by day
And marvel at your mercy.

The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.

(1 Timothy 1:15 ESV)
