1 As we believe in the gospel way,
As we are safe in the fold today,
We’re here to show, as we work and pray,
The saving grace of Jesus.

Refrain:
Glory to God for the saving grace,
The saving grace of Jesus;
Oh, glory to God for the saving grace,
The saving grace of Jesus.

2 As peace is found at his loving feet,
As pardon waits at the mercy-seat,
We’re here to show, as a message sweet,
The saving grace of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 As we rejoicing that he came to save,
As we have life by the life he gave,
We’re here to show, with a spirit brave,
The saving grace of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 As all may rest in the better land,
As all may yet in his presence stand,
We’re here to show, as a faithful band,
The saving grace of Jesus. [Refrain]
