Hymn/Song Information

By grace I'm saved grace free




By grace I'm saved,
grace free and boundless;
My soul, believe and doubt it not.
Why stagger at
this word of promise?
Hath Scripture ever
falsehood taught?
Nay; then this word
must true remain;
By grace thou, too,
shalt heav'n obtain.


By grace! None dare
lay claim to merit;
Our works and conduct
have no worth.
God in His love sent our Redeemer,
Christ Jesus, to this sinful earth;
His death did for our sins atone,
And we are saved by grace alone.


By grace! Oh, mark
this word of promise
When thou art by thy sins opprest,
When Satan plagues
thy troubled conscience,
And when thy heart is seeking rest.
What reason cannot comprehend
God by His grace to thee doth send.


By grace God's Son,
our only Savior,
Came down to earth to bear our sin.
Was it because of thine own merit
That Jesus died thy soul to win?
Nay, it was grace, and grace alone,
That brought Him from
His heavenly throne.


By grace! This ground
of faith is certain;
So long as God is true, it stands.
What saints have penned
by inspiration,
What in His Word
our God commands,
What our whole faith
must rest upon,
Is Grace alone, grace in His Son.


By grace! But think not,
thou who livest
Securely on in godless ways,
That thou - though all
are called - receivest
The promised rest
that wakes our praise;
By grace none find in heaven a place
Who live in sin in hope of grace.


By grace! They who have heard
this sentence
Must bid hypocrisy farewell;
For only after deep repentance
The soul what grace imports can tell:
To sin while grace a trifle seems,
To faith it bright with glory beams.


By grace to timid
hearts that tremble,
In tribulation's furnace tried,
By grace, despite
all fear and trouble,
The Father's heart is open wide.
Where could I help
and strength secure
If grace were not my anchor sure?


By grace! On this
I'll rest when dying;
In Jesus' promise I rejoice;
For though I know
my heart's condition,
I also know my Savior's voice.
My heart is glad, all grief has flown,
Since I am saved by grace alone.


By grace! May sin
and Satan hearken!
I bear my flag of faith in hand
And pass - for doubts
my joy can't darken
The Red Sea to the Promised Land.
I cling to what my Savior taught
And trust it, whether felt or not.
