In Christ I now believe,

I trust His precious blood,

His righteousness by faith receive,

And I'm a child of God.


My sins are blotted out,

I know they are all gone:

God's pardon I can never doubt,

I trust His holy Son.


Complete in Christ I stand

Perfect before my God,

Equal to all the law's demand,

I'm justified with God!


I'm saved by grace alone,

By grace I'm kept secure;

Grace will complete what it's begun,

By grace I shall endure.


When I my race have won

And grace its work completes,

My debt to sovereign grace I'll own

When Christ this sinner greets.
