God’s sovereign grace selected me
To have in heaven a place;
‘Twas the good pleasure of His will
I’m justified by grace.
In due time Christ on Calvary died;
Flowed that crimson flood
Which makes the foulest white as snow;
I’m justified by blood.
God raised Him up; this is the pledge,
Should evil doubtings low’r,
His resurrection quells each fear;
I’m justified by power.
The Holy Spirit guided me
To what the scripture saith;
I grasped the truth; Christ died for me!
I’m justified by faith.
Now if you doubt that I am Christ’s
If one suspicion lurks,
I’ll show by deed that I am His,
I’m justified by works.
I praise the Lord, ‘tis all of Him,
The grace, the faith, the blood,
The resurrection power, the works,
I’m justified by God.
