Grace is given – 2 – v3

Grace is not earned by anyone,
there no sense of entitlement;
Grace is given, to all,
humbly, at the cross

Grace is given,
a free gift of God;
We only must come, to believe,
to turn our lives to him

Grace is not earned
nothing we can claim;
Grace is given
to those who bear his name
