FAITH IS THE GIFT OF GRACE ALONE
(Tune: When I Can Read My Title Clear #497 CM)
Faith is the gift of grace alone,
My God, how can it be,
That You should choose, in saving love,
To give that gift to me?
A fallen, guilty sinner, I
Deserve eternal wrath;
Helpless, I would not come to Christ,
Could not escape my death.
Great God, You sought this sinner out,
You called, and now I live!
You gently forced me to Your Son,
And caused me to believe!
A sinner saved by sovereign grace,
My praise I cannot hold:
Hail, sovereign, free, unchanging grace!
"Salvation's of the Lord!"
