By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.@Ephesians 2:8-9

Nothing either great or small,
Remains for me to do;
Jesus died and paid it all—
Yes, all the debt I owe.

Refrain

Jesus paid it all,
All the debt I owe;
Jesus died, and paid it all—
Yes, all the debt I owe.

When He from His lofty throne
Stooped down to do and die,
Everything was fully done;
Yes, Finished! was His cry.

Refrain

Weary, working, plodding one!
O, wherefore toil you so?
Cease your doing: All was done
Yes, ages long ago.

Refrain

Till to Jesus’ work you cling,
Alone by simple faith,
Doing is a deadly thing,
All doing ends in death.

Refrain

Cast your deadly doing down,
Down, all at Jesus’ feet;
Stand in Him, in Him alone,
All glorious and complete.

Refrain
