lyrics

Not what my hands have done can save my guilty soul;
Not what my toiling body works can make my spirit whole.
Not what I feel or what I do can give me peace with God;
Not all my prayers nor cries nor tears can bear this heavy load.

Thy work alone, O precious Christ, can ease this weight of sin;
Thy blood alone, O Lamb of God, can give me peace within.
Thy love alone, O Father God, is what my spirit needs
Now rid me of this dark unrest, and set this captive free

Your voice alone, O Lord, can speak to me of grace;
Your power alone, O Lord, does all my sin erase.
No other work but Yours, no other blood will do;
No other strength but Your great power can bear me safely through.

Each thought of hate and fear and doubt, each lingering shade of gloom—
His cross dispels—my unbelief is buried in His tomb
I bless the Christ of God; Oh, I rest on love divine;
And with unfaltering lip and heart I call this Savior mine.

Your voice alone, O Lord, can speak to me of grace;
Your power alone, O Lord, does all my sin erase.
No other work but Yours, no other blood will do;
No other strength but Your great power can bear me safely through.

I praise the God of grace; Oh I trust His truth and might;
He calls me His, I call Him mine, My God, my joy, my light.
’Tis He who saves my life, and freely pardon gives;
I love because He first loved me, I live because He lives.

Your voice alone, O Lord, can speak to me of grace;
Your power alone, O Lord, does all my sin erase.
No other work but Yours, no other blood will do;
No other strength but Your great power can bear me safely through.

Your voice alone, O Lord, can speak to me of grace;
Your power alone, O Lord, does all my sin erase.
No other work but Yours, no other blood will do;
No other strength but Your great power can bear me safely through.
No other strength but Your great power can bear me safely through.
