Grace Alone

Grace Alone

I was an orphan lost at the fall                  
Running away when I'd hear your call
But Father, You worked Your will 
I had no righteousness of my own
I had no right to draw near your throne
But Father, You loved me still
 


And in love before You laid the world's foundation
You predestined to adopt me as Your own

You have raised me up so high above my station
I'm a child of God by grace & grace alone


You left Your home to seek out the lost
You knew the great and terrible cost
But Jesus, Your face was set 
I worked my fingers down to the bone
Nothing I did could ever atone
But Jesus, You paid my debt 
 

                                                              
By Your blood I have redemption and salvation

Lord, You died that I might reap what You have sown

And You rose that I might be a new creation
I am born again by grace and grace alone 
 

                                                     

I was in darkness all of my life
I never knew the day from the night
But Spirit, You made me see 
I swore I knew the way on my own
Head full of rocks, a heart made of stone                                 
But Spirit, You moved in me 

 

At Your  touch my sleeping spirit was awakened

On my darkened heart the light of Christ has shone

Called into a kingdom that cannot be shaken
Heaven's citizen by grace & grace alone
So I'll stand in faith by grace & grace alone

 

I will run the race by grace and grace alone
I will slay my sin by grace and grace alone
I will reach the end by grace & grace alone
