No works of law have we to boast—
By nature ruined, guilty, lost;
Condemned already, but Thy hand
Provided what Thou didst demand:

Refrain

We take the guilty sinner’s name,
The guilty sinner’s Savior claim;
We take the guilty sinner’s name,
The guilty sinner’s Savior claim.

No faith we bring. ’Tis Christ alone—
’Tis what He is, what He has done;
He is for us as given by God,
It was for us He shed His blood:

Refrain

We do not feel our sins are gone,
But know it from Thy Word alone;
We know that Thou our sins didst lay
On Him who has put sin away:

Refrain

Because we know our sins forgiven,
We happy feel: our home is Heaven.
O help us now as sons, our God,
To tread the path that Jesus trod:

Refrain
