As I Received Christ at the First — Don Fortner
(Tune: #228 — My Faith has Found a Resting Place — CMD)
So full of unbelief and sin, hope that itÕs heaven born?
With temper vile and horrid pride, can I yet claim GodÕs grace?
My sin, which cannot be denied, has robbed my soul of peace.
With weeping eyes the Savior view, and hope IÕm justified.
Christ Jesus died for sinnersÕ sake. (And that I know I am!)
The ground He gives I humbly take, and trust my Lord, the Lamb.
ItÕs by His merit (Gift of grace!) That this poor sinner lives!
As I received Christ at the first, so now I come to Him —
A sinner base and full of lusts, whose only hope is Him!
