(Tune: How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds #53 CM)
As soon as a sinner believes
In Christís atoning blood,
Pardon and righteousness are his -
Free gifts of grace from God.
The faith that brings us to the Lamb
Is something that God gives,
(Not a decision made by man),
The Spiritís gift it is.
This faith will conquer death and hell,
And vanquish earthly care,
And what is stranger yet to tell -
It moves Godís arm by prayer!
Faith brings us vile worms of the dust,
Knowing our guilt and sin,
To hope Godís forgiveness is just
†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† And His love without end!
