Songs for Worship

Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.  Praise the LORD with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.

Psalm 33:1-3 (NIV)

 

   

My Saving God

Background

This upbeat song celebrates justification.  We are totally unworthy of the forgiveness and grace that we have received from God.  But our saving God has declared us righteous for Jesus' sake.  This righteousness of Christ is ours through faith in him alone.  Knowing that our God is a saving God enables us to approach Him without fear.  We confess our sins, and receive anew the forgiveness which Christ won for us by his death and resurrection.

 

Lyrics

Chorus
You are my saving God
And I lift my voice to praise your holy name
Your grace has saved and set me free
You wash away my sins
And give to me a brand new heart inside

And now I live eternally
 

Verse 1
I am a sinner, Lord
I’ve sinned against Your Word
I’ve fallen short of what Your Law demands of me
But here without a fear I come before Your face
It’s nothing that’s in me
But the wonder of Your grace!

Verse 2
And now I’m justified
Because You came and died
Because You took the guilt of all my sins away
I’m justified, but not by anything I do
I’m saved by faith alone
By faith alone in You! 

Verse 3
For me, a saving plan
For me, became a man
For me, upon the cross Your arms held open wide
Such love You pour upon a sinner such as I
Such love to raise me
From the grave to You on high!
