I was an orphan lost at the fall
Running away when I’d hear you call
Father you worked your will

I had no righteousness of my own
I had no right to draw near your throne
But father you loved me still

And in love, before you laid the world’s foundation
You predestined to adopt me as your own
You have raised me so high above my nature
I’m a child of god by grace and grace alone

You left your home to seek out the lost
You knew the great and terrible cost
Jesus our fates were set

I worked my fingers down to the bone
Nothing I did could ever atone
Jesus you paid my debt

By your blood I have redemption and salvation
Lord you died that I might reap what you have sown
And you rose that I might be a new creation
I am born again by grace and grace alone

I was darkness all of my life
I never knew the day from the night
but Spirit, you made me see
I swore I knew the way on my own
A head full of rocks a heart made of stone
But spirit, you moved in me

At your touch my sleeping spirit was awakened
on my darkened heart the light of Christ has shown
Called into a kingdom that cannot be shaken
I will stand in faith by grace and grace alone
