THE GOSPEL OF GRACE


Through God's riches at Christ's expense
Each sinner will be saved
And once in Christ to find new friends
With all his sins now waived...
To think, that every law God set
Has taught us what was right,
Yet when we've sinned, we've felt regret
That lingers day and night...

Through God's riches at Christ's expense,
A robe of righteousness
And wise is he whose sinning ends,
So God above can bless...
Who knows? Perhaps a healing touch,
Or visions once he's prayed,
Or simply shown God loves so much
With miracles displayed...

Through God's riches at Christ's expense,
God's Revelations came,
To all His Churches He still sends
Us hope in Jesus' Name...
To think, the future there revealed,
Prepares us here and now,
A holy harvest yet to yield
That God will still allow...

Through God's riches at Christ's expense,
Our future King will reign,
The thousand years that God intends
When Jesus comes again...
When Israel calls upon the Lord,
By faith when wisdom dawns,
It's then that Israel stands assured
And thus no longer mourns...

Through God's riches at Christ's expense,
Not by our works at all,
But by God's gift each comprehends
The fruit of Adam's fall...
The choice is Heaven, or it's Hell,
There stands no in-between!
That's why before we say farewell,
God's Son must intervene!

Through God's riches at Christ's expense,
Believe and be baptised!
While Pentecost was quite intense,
Three thousand turned to Christ!
That's how God moved in ancient days,
That's how God's Gospel starts,
That's why our spirits lift up praise
That's borne in joyful hearts...
