Not by my own merit

God declared me righteous
When I bowed before His Son
When I confessed my sins
And received what He had done

Not by my own merit
And not by the works I’d done
Did God declare me righteous
Through His One and only Son

Through faith alone I stand
And before my gracious King
I stand with Christ alone
And to faith alone I cling

With Christ, I went through death
With Him, I was crucified
And now, with Him alive
To my dying flesh I died

I was raised with Him in life
Now new life in me is found
For He now lives in me
And I am now heaven bound
