Receive the grace that brought you your salvation:
though we were undeserving, Jesus died.
God in his love spared us from condemnation,
instead of us his Son was crucified.

Go, run the race, your course on earth completing;
keep your imperishable crown in view.
Say no to lies, to compromise and cheating,
say yes to Christ who gave himself for you.

Come, see his face when, radiant in glory,
our long-expected Saviour Christ appears.
Then we'll be like him, purified and holy,
no more to sin or suffer pain and tears.

So sing his praise, rememb'ring all he gave us,
and shine like stars where sin and darkness reign.
May others hear the word of life that saved us
and praise him with us when he comes again!
