1 Jesus came to earth by a lowly birth,
Gave Himself as an off'ring of matchless worth;
To His own He came in His Father’s name,
But they scorned to receive Him their King.
But as many as received Him to them He gave the pow'r,
The power to become the sons of God;
But as many as received Him to them He gave the pow'r
To become the sons of God.
2 Grace and pardon free, all for you and me,
Ev'ry one who receives Him a son may be;
For His blood He spilt to remove our guilt,
When He offered Himself once for all. [Chorus]
3. Not by works we come as the Father’s Son,
To receive as a welcome the words "well done;"
Lest we fain would boast as a mighty host,
Knowing not ’tis the free gift of God. [Chorus]
