The Sovereign Potter reigns above;
He sits upon a holy throne.
He shows his justice and his love
And all to make his glory known.
Of the same lump of sinful clay
He fashions some to show his grace,
But then permits the rest to stay
The rebels of a fallen race.
That God his sovereign mercy shows
Is not of him who wills or runs.
He freely grants to those he chose
To see his glory in the Son.
There is a truth that we must trust
That God must save and he alone.
He raises beggars from the dust
To set them on a glorious throne.
If I should glory let it be
In what the Savior did for me.
I have no merit of my own
My boasting is in Christ alone.
He took my place, he owned my guilt,
His blood in innocence was spilt.
He crowned my head with righteousness
All through the triumph of his grace.
Before God’s throne I stand complete
In him who suffered for my sin.
His beauty has become my own;
My righteousness before God’s throne.
To think that in my place he stood,
Condemned to bear my load of sin
The spotless Lamb, the Son of God,
My mind can scarcely take it in.
Condemned before God’s judgment bar
Because he bore my guilt for sin
‘Tis greater love, yes greater far
Than I could ever comprehend.
He bore my sin upon the tree;
My heart is glad, my soul if free
It is my honor to confess
I wear his robe of righteousness.
There is a Priest in heav’n above
Who now appears before God’s throne.
My name is written on his heart
He deigns to name me as his own.
As long as he is there for me
To plead my cause before my God.
My heart is free, my conscience clean
Since he has borne my awful load.
He once appeared at ages’ end
To put away my guilt and sin.
He, by his sacrifice and blood,
Has reconciled my soul to God.
To those who watch for his return
He will appear on earth again.
This time he brings no sacrifice
But comes to free us from all sin.
Based on Hebrews 9:24-28
Salvation does not come alone
But always brings its fellows.
There’s faith that works, hope that endures
And love that pumps the bellows.
We show our love for God above
Not by our grand profession
But by our service to his folks
And by our faith’s progression.
If we would have assurance true
It will require persistence,
To know our hopes are founded well,
In spite of all resistance.
If we would know that we are heirs
Of God’s great gospel promise,
We must with faith and patience run
To seize the prize before us.
Based on Heb. 6:9-12
If I should boast let it not be
In works that I have done
But in the work that Christ has wrought,
And in his work alone.
Those deeds that seemed a gain to me
In which I dared to boast;
The very best that I have done
I now consider loss.
I glory now in Christ above
Who sits upon his throne.
His Spirit leads my soul to boast
And revel in the Son.
And now I have no confidence
In what the flesh can do.
My faith is founded on the rock,
My Savior ever true.
To know the Lord, be found in Him,
My quest that will endure,
And in his righteousness alone
My soul now rests secure.
Based on Phil. 3:3-9
