FOR GOD, the Lord of earth and heaven,
SO LOVED, and longed to see forgiven,
THE WORLD, in sin and pleasure mad
THAT HE GAVE the greatest Gift He had;
HIS ONLY SON to take our place
THAT WHOSOEVER—Oh, what grace!
BELIEVETH, placing simple trust
IN HIM, the Righteous and the Just,
SHALL NOT PERISH—lost in sin,
BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE in Him.
"Lord, help my unbelief!
Give me the peace of faith,
To rest with childlike trust
On what Thy gospel saith,
That whosoever will believe,
Shall everlasting life receive."
"Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us."
