630. By the Grace of God

1 By the grace of God I am saved today,
I will walk by faith in the narrow way;
I will trust His grace to preserve my soul,
I will rest secure while the billows roll.

Refrain:
By the grace of God I will live for Him,
I will trust His power to keep from sin;
I will never doubt, but resist the foe,
I will grow in grace as I onward go.

2 By the grace of God I will never yield
To the tempter’s pow’r, but with sword and shield
I’ll defeat the foe with an ardor strong,
In the name of Christ sing the victor’s song. [Refrain]

3 By the grace of God I will testify;
I will watch and pray as the moments fly,
I will live for Him in despite of all,
I will hear and heed the Redeemer’s call. [Refrain]

4 By the grace of God I will never fear:
What can harm my soul when the Lord is near?
If I keep low down in humility,
If I walk by faith, He’ll abide with me. [Refrain]

5 By the grace of God I will keep my eyes
On the Lord alone and the promised prize,
I will bear all things in His precious name,
I will trust His grace and His promise claim. [Refrain]
