A Salvation Story (Part VII/The Conclusion)
You, O Pharisee, why do you boast of your own?
Why do you put trust and hope on your works alone?
Why are you trying hard to earn your salvation
And striving so hard to earn your own redemption?
For a free gift is the grace of God that’s saving
Freely available’s the life everlasting;
Pricelessly given was His act of redeeming
And needless to pay’s His freedom that’s unbinding!
In your brokenness, seek for the Lord’s help alone
For the Great I AM, the Lord, holds your redemption;
In your sinfulness, don’t trust the strength of your own
For only Jesus is the Way to Salvation!
