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

2 For nothing I have done
can save my guilty soul;
no burden that my flesh has borne
can make my spirit whole.

3 Not what I feel or do
no toil, nor pain nor blood,
not all my prayers and sighs and tears
can give me peace with God.

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

5 Not love for you, O Lord,
but your great love for me
can rid me of this dark unrest
and set my spirit free.

6 Your voice alone, O God,
can speak the word of grace
to calm the tempests in my heart
and make its raging cease.

7 And so I bless your name,
I trust your love divine;
by grace, for all eternity,
I dare to call you mine.
