It is not of myself, this gift I enjoy

Nothing that I have done or will do

Gains for me this incredible blessing

I am powerless to accomplish

The smallest, least little portion

Of all that I have gained and will gain

It is not nor has it ever been

 

Of me

 

All I have, all I ever hope to gain

Is solely through the love of God

In no other source do I find blessing

Peace, assurance of salvation

Than in His freely given love

Alone of all the things that are

His love removes this stain from my life
