My heart and mind are so depraved, yet, by God Iíve been saved,
When to me God would afford, salvation through Christ, The Lord,
Through salvation, I am forgiven, now, New Life I have been given,
Now in Christ, Iím a New Creation, all afforded by Godís Salvation.
This happened the instant when, by Godís Spirit, I was Born Again,
Born anew, by The Spirit of God, while a sinner on this earthly sod.
Where on earth, no one is good, while from Christ it is understood,
ďNo one is good, no not oneĒ, I have the righteousness of The Son,
Not a righteousness of my own, but, which is found in Christ alone,
His Righteousness imputed to me, all done by The God of Eternity,
Righteousness received by grace, when in Christ I believed by faith,
This, that I could live this life, in the Righteousness, of Jesus Christ.
Though I am still a sinner friend, my Lord has for me a glorious end,
One which began upon this earth, this when I experienced New Birth,
As a believer I am now set apart, granted, from Christ, my new start,
This began for me that new story, which shall end in Heavenís Glory.
Friend, it is alone the Righteousness, of my Lord God, Christ Jesus,
That saved me from sinís marketplace, all provided by Godís Grace;
There is nothing I could have done, apart from the life of Godsí Son,
Who paid sinís entire penalty for me, on the bloody cross of Calvary.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
