Now God has us where he wants us,
Our Lord has all the time in this world
And God has all eternity in Heaven
to shower grace and kindness on us in Christ Jesus.
Saving us is all God’s idea, and all His work.
All we do is trust Jesus to let Him do it.
It’s God’s gift from start to finish!
We don’t play the major role.
If we did, we’d probably go around bragging
that we’d done the whole thing!
No, we neither make nor save ourselves.
God does both the making and saving.
He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join Him in the work he does,
We are His workmanship
We are His good work
Christ is working in and through His Grace
And this work of Grace is what He has gotten ready for us to do,
So we yield into His Grace and His work
That’s the best and only way we are at our best doing what He is doing.
By Grace His Grace we are doing what He is doing through and in us.
By Grace we are saved
