Not what these hands have done

Not what these hands have done
can save this guilty soul,
and nothing that this 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 or sighs or tears
can bear my awful load.

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

4. Your love to me, O God,
not mine, O Lord, to you,
can rid me of this deep unrest
and all my heart renew.

5. Your grace alone, O God,
speaks pardoning love to me;
your power alone, O Son of God,
can set my spirit free.

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