Only Through Faith

"It is not works of righteousness
That frees our hearts to sing,
But faith in the Lord Jesus Christ,
Through which we know the King.
We cannot come to God by works –
The law has never saved –
Hearts bound in the state of darkness
Are completely depraved.
Our own righteousness is but rags,
In light of holiness,
Only through faith in God’s pure Lamb
Can we have righteousness.

But, when we enter the kingdom,
Through faith, saved by grace…
We shall work and serve the Master
Till we behold His face.
There is no greater joy on earth
Than pleasing our great King,
When we have been given new birth,
Others to Him we bring.
No, it’s not works of righteousness
That frees our hearts to sing,
But faith in the Lord Jesus Christ,
Our living, reigning King."

Faith Works
