We sang this beautiful song by Horatius Bonar during Lord’s Day worship this morning.
NOT WHAT MY HANDS HAVE DONE
“By grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast.” Eph 2: 8-9
Not what my hands have done can save my guilty soul;
Not what my toiling flesh has borne can make my spirit whole.
Not what I feel or do can give me peace with God;
Not all my prayers and sighs and tears can bear my awful load.
Your voice alone, O Lord, can speak to me of grace;
Your power alone, O Son of God, can all my sin erase.
No other work but Yours, no other blood will do;
No strength but that which is divine can bear me safely through.
I praise the Christ of God; I rest on love divine;
And with unfaltering lip and heart I call this Savior mine.
My Lord has saved my life and freely pardon gives;
I love because He first loved me, I live because He lives.
