GODíS ONE COMMANDENT
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.
