     8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: 9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. 10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. 11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law. 12 So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty. 13 For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.(KJV)

1. Not 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 awe-full 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 Savior mine.
