Representative Text

1 I’ve left Egypt and its sin behind me,
Pitched my tent in Canaan’s blest embrace,
Told the world that it may ever find me
Living under grace.

From sin and condemnation, I now am free,
I’ve tasted full salvation and it just suits me;
I live in perfect freedom, in ev’ry time and place,
For I’m not living under law, but under grace.

2 When temptation spreads its net around me,
Then I look into my Saviour’s face,
And rejoice to know that sin has found me
Living under grace. [Refrain]

3 On the mountain-top of blessing living,
There can be no safer resting place;
Here all glory to my Lord I’m giving,
Living under grace. [Refrain]
