(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!
