CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Cross by Nathan Furr free photo #12439

By grace alone,
not of me . . .
in Christ through faith
is why I’m free.

By grace alone,
not of my hand
so I humbly receive
redemption’s plan.

By grace alone,
not of my deed
the Word is sufficient
for want and need.

By grace alone,
not of my thought
God and favor
cannot be bought.

By grace alone,
not of my doing
a gift in measure
worth my pursuing.

By grace alone,
not of me . . .
justification epitomized
on the cross of Calvary!

Ephesians 2:8
King James Version

“For by grace you have been saved through faith,
and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.”
