NOT WHAT THESE HAND HAVE DONE

1.NOT what what these hands have done
Can save this guilty soul;
Not what this toiling flesh has borne
Can make my spirit whole.

2.Not what I feel or do
Can give me peace with God;
Not all my prayers, and sighs,
and tears Can bear my awful load.

3.Thy work alone, O Christ,
Can ease this weight of sin;
Thy blood alone, O Lamb of God,
Can give me peace within.

4.Thy love to me, O God,
Not mine, O Lord, to Thee,
Can rid me of this dark unrest,
And set my spirit free.

5.Thy grace alone, O God,
To me can pardon speak;
Thy power alone, O Son of God,
Can this sore bondage break.

6.I bless the Christ of God,
I rest on love divine,
And with unfaltering lip and heart,
I call this Saviour mine.
