Ephesians 2:8,9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Romans 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

John 1:17
For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.


Salvation is by grace alone

Apart from human merit,

Bestowed on all who will believe,

By baptism of the Spirit;

The moment one is saved by faith,

Through the “finished work” of Christ,

That moment he is born again,

Just once and never twice.

The instant we receive by faith

The forgiveness of our sins,

That instant we are Spirit-sealed,

Our eternal life begins;

Accepted we, sealed and born again,

Upon God’s word we stand,

And no one shall pluck us ever,

Out of His loving hand.

The works we do from day to day,

Commanded in His word,

Exemplifies our love for Him,

Our high exalted Lord.

Our hearts, our lives our all we give,

He gave upon the tree

His precious life us to redeem,

From sin to set us free.

By Benj. F. Dotson, 1949
