“So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy!” Ro.9:16

Tune:  Take my life and let it be…


What a joy to be in Christ

Based on what He sacrificed,

To His grace I once was blind

Till it pleased Him me to find!


Irresistible was that grace

As He fixed on me His face,

That I hardly realized

Till its smile I recognized!


O, that grace that does depend

On His love that has no end,

Shown at His pure sovereign will

Far, far from my finite skill!


Many years have now gone by,

To Himself He did me tie,

Sense of sin may at me gnaw,

Yet its slave I am no more!


In His grace I fell in love,

May His pow´r from above

touch now my cracked lips until

I depart at His good will!
