I see recorded in the Word

God's one commandment very plain:

He says, Believe on Christ my Son,

And I will save you from your sin.

God does not bid me pray, or feel,

Or bid me do a single thing:

He simply says, Believe my Son,

And faith will full salvation bring.


My God, I take You at Your Word:

Though I'm a guilty wretch undone,

Unworthy of Your love and grace,

I trust the merits of Your Son.


My only hope, my only plea

Is that Christ lived and died for me:

But Christ alone is all I need,

He's all that God requires of me.
