Hymn/Song Information

Thy works not mine O Christ Speak gladness to this




Thy works, not mine, O Christ,
Speak gladness to this heart;
They tell me all is done,
They bid my fear depart.
To whom save Thee, who canst alone
For sin atone, Lord, shall I flee?


Thy tears, not mine, O Christ,
Have wept my guilt away;
And turned this night of mine
Into a blesséd day:
To whom, save thee who canst alone
For sin atone, Lord, shall I flee?


Thy wounds, not mine, O Christ,
Can heal my bruiséd soul;
Thy stripes, not mine, contain
The balm that makes me whole.
To whom save Thee, who canst alone
For sin atone, Lord, shall I flee?


Thy cross, not mine, O Christ,
Has borne the awe-full load
Of sins that none could bear
But the incarnate God.
To whom save Thee, who canst alone
For sin atone, Lord, shall I flee?


Thy death, not mine, O Christ,
Has paid the ransom due;
Ten thousand deaths like mine
Would have been all too few.
To whom save Thee, who canst alone
For sin atone, Lord, shall I flee?


Thy righteousness, O Christ,
Alone can cover me;
No righteousness avails
Save that which is of Thee.
To whom save Thee, who canst alone
For sin atone, Lord, shall I flee?


---Alternative verses---


Thy pains, not mine, O Christ,
upon the shameful tree,
Have paid the law’s full price
and purchased peace for me.
To whom, save Thee, Who canst alone
For sin atone, Lord, shall I flee?


Thy righteousness alone
Can clothe and beautify;
I wrap it round my soul;
In this I'll live and die:
To whom save Thee, who canst alone
For sin atone, Lord, shall I flee?
