Free Grace Is What I Need    Don Fortner

(Tune: #46 O For A Thousand Tongues  -- CM)


1.       The gospel is good news indeed To sinners when they see,

       Salvation is by grace, (God’s deed!), By grace in Christ, and free!



2.       A beggar poor, a wretch undone, With no good works to plead,

       (“Free grace, free grace,” I love the sound!) Free grace is what I need.



3.       Salvation by free grace inspires The hope that I may live;

       Since all that God from man requires, In Christ He freely gives!



4.       Yes, full atonement, righteousness, And a new nature, too,

       Repentance, faith, (all gifts of grace!) Are works no man can do!



5.       Free grace, free grace, in Christ abounds! Free grace is grace indeed.

       “Free grace, free grace,” (I love the sound!) Free grace is what I need!
