Some may think they’re fit for heaven
By good deeds that they have done.
This makes nonsense of the Bible
Why God sacrificed His Son.
All our righteousness is nothing
On ourselves we can’t rely.
If we could be saved without Him
Why was Jesus sent to die?
 

All have sinned and all will perish
Sin God cannot tolerate.
If we know Christ as our Saviour
We are Holy in God’s sight.
All our righteousness is nothing
On ourselves we can’t rely.
If we could be saved without Him
Why was Jesus sent to die?
 

When our time on earth has ended
Just one thing will matter then…
Have we peace with God the Father
Through our faith in Christ His Son.
All our righteousness is nothing
On ourselves we can’t rely.
If we could be saved without Him
Why was Jesus sent to die?

‘For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves;
it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.’
[Ephesians 2:8-9]
