Full Text

1 ‘Tis not by works that we have done,
Our souls redeem’d shall be;
But by the blood of God’s dear Son,
Who died on Calvary.

Refrain:
By Grace are ye saved,
By Grace are ye saved thro’ faith,
And that not of yourselves,
It is the gift of God.
By Grace are ye saved,
By Grace are ye saved thro’ faith,
And that not of yourselves,
It is the gift of God.

2 ‘Tis not by works that we can do,
Our righteousness is vain;
But by what Christ Himself hath done,
Eternal life we gain. [Refrain]

3 ‘Tis not by works of ours, that we
Can know our sins forgiv’n;
But by the living word of Him
Who pleads for us in heav’n. [Refrain]

4 ‘Tis not our works, but Christ’s alone,
Then rest thy anxious soul;
For safe thou art on Him thy Rock
While endless ages roll. [Refrain]
