Hymns from the Past – By Grace I’m Saved

By grace I’m saved, grace free and bound-less;

My soul, be-lieve and doubt it not.

Why stag-ger at this word of prom-ise?

Has Scrip-ture ev-er false-hood taught?

No; then this word must true re-main:

By grace you too shall heav’n ob-tain.

By grace! None dare lay claim to mer-it;

Our works and con-duct have no worth.

God in His love sent our Re-deem-er,

Christ Je-sus, to this sin-ful earth;

His death did for our sins a-tone,

And we are saved by grace a-lone.

By grace! O mark this word of prom-ise

When you are by your sins op-pressed,

When Sa-tan plagues your trou-bled con-science,

And when your heart is seek-ing rest.

What rea-son can-not com-pre-hend

God by His grace to you will send.

By grace! This ground of faith is cer-tain;

So long as God is true, it stands.

What saints have penned by in-spi-ra-tion,

What in His Word our God com-mands,

What our whole faith must rest up-on,

Is grace a-lone, grace in His Son.
