Not in Myself

Not in myself
relying on God
for my salvation,
his grace alone
my future assured
not by my works at all

In God only, the love of Christ
in coming to earth to save us
growing as a man
his feet of clay
going to the cross for me

Only in God
not in myself
for I am captive of my sin
all I am and all I hope to be
is in being yoked to him
