By the grace of God I am saved today,
I will walk by faith in the narrow way;
I will trust His grace to preserve my soul,
I will rest secure while the billows roll.

Refrain

By the grace of God I will live for Him,
I will trust His power to keep from sin;
I will never doubt, but resist the foe,
I will grow in grace as I onward go.

By the grace of God I will never yield
To the tempter’s power, but with sword and shield
I’ll defeat the foe with an ardor strong,
In the name of Christ sing the victor’s song.

Refrain

By the grace of God I will testify,
I will watch and pray as the moments fly,
I will live for Him in despite of all,
I will hear and heed the Redeemer’s call.

Refrain

By the grace of God I will never fear;
What can harm my soul when the Lord is near?
If I keep low down in humility,
If I walk by faith He’ll abide with me.

Refrain

By the grace of God I will keep my eyes
On the Lord alone and the promised prize;
I will bear all things in His precious name,
I will trust His grace and His promise claim.
