“If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us.” | 1 John 1:8

Lyrics by Isaac Watts
Alt. Lyrics and Music by Andrew Henry

Lord, we confess our numerous faults;
How great our guilt has been,
How vain and foolish all our thoughts,
How all our lives were sin.
But, O my soul, forever praise,
Forever love His name
Who turns your feet from dangerous ways
Of folly, sin, and shame.

‘Tis not by works of righteousness
Which our own hands have done,
But we are saved by God’s free grace
Abounding through His Son.
‘Tis from the mercy of our God
That all our hopes begin;
Here by the Water and the Blood
Our souls are washed from sin.

Now through the purchase of His death
Who hung upon the tree,
The Spirit is sent down to breathe
On such dry bones as we.
Raised from the dead, we live anew;
And justified by grace,
We shall appear in glory, too,
And see our Father’s face.

Raised from the dead, we live anew;
And justified by grace,
We shall appear in glory, too,
And see our Father’s face.
