Salvation Sure



Tune: Trentham

(one tune to 'Breathe on me, breath of God')

Ephesians 2 v.4-9 parts

*********

Because of His love great

For us, not left to fate

Are we, but God who is rich in

Mercy, forgave our sins

 

He did make us alive

In Christ, in Him we thrive

Even when we were spiritually

In dead state, in sins all

 

It is by grace that we

have been saved by faith, see

Not of our own doings, we can

Not save ourselves, no man

 

It is gift of God to

Us, in Christ we made new

So that no one in self can boast

But sole in Christ our host

            I feel certain that this is a hymn poem in 6.6.8.6 format .. unless of course, we are both mistaken .. Neville 🙂

              Thanks N. Yep, also known as 'Short Metre' or S.M. Not a syllable more or less! You woulda thought 6.6.6.6. would be shorter. Well it is, but I dunno why that isn't Short Metre. That's about the extent of my reading music.
              Meanwhile - you can't beat.....You beaten that egg? How many ya having for supper?
