Tune: St Francis Xavier

('My God, I love thee, not because')

Ephesians 2 v.4-10


God, who is rich in mercy, He

Comes to save us now, see

With His great love wherewith He loved

Us, and has us encoved


Even when we spiritually

Were dead in sins, so be

he made us alive in His Son

Christ Jesus, sinless One


By grace we are saved, and God sure

Has raised us up e'ermore

And made us sit together too

Above, with Christ, made new


So that in the ages to come

He shows still what is done

Exceeding riches of His grace

We this His kindness trace


It is all done through Christ, for we

Cannot ourselves save, see

By grace we are saved through faith, this

The way that none should miss


This is not of our own doing sure

'Tis the gift of God sure

Not of man's work, so none can boast

But trust God fully, most


For we are God's workmanship, we

In Christ created be

For all good works, God has ordained

Them, we live unashamed

        Thanks Sir N. Yes, it's pesky if an extra syllable slips in - sometimes it does. lol.
