Song Devotional: Grace Alone

Listen to the original here: 

Through God’s grace – and through His grace alone – we are able to draw near His throne as one of His beloved children and as a citizen of heaven. Through God’s grace, we have redemption and salvation, and we are able to slay our sin. Praise be to God! Please read, reflect and sing with me 🙂


‘For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.’ – Ephesians 2:8-9
‘For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.’ – Romans 3:23-24


  1. What was your life previously like as an ‘orphan lost at the fall’?
  2. How has God, through His grace and love, worked His will in your life? What are things like now as an adopted child of God?
  3. When might you be tempted to rely on your own works or your own righteousness? How can we remember that our redemption through Jesus is a gift through God’s grace?



I was an orphan lost at the fall
Running away when I’d hear your call
But Father, you worked your will

I had no righteousness of my own
I had no right to draw near your throne
But Father, you loved me still

And in love before you laid the world’s foundation
You predestined to adopt me as your own
You have raised me up so high above my station
I’m a child of God by grace and grace alone

You left your home to seek out the lost
You knew the great and terrible cost
But Jesus, your face was set

I worked my fingers down to the bone
Nothing I did could ever atone
But Jesus, you paid my debt

By your blood I have redemption and salvation
Lord, you died that I might reap what you have sown
And you rose that I might be a new creation
I am born again by grace and grace alone

I was in darkness all of my life
I never knew the day from the night
But Spirit, you made me see

I swore I knew the way on my own
Head full of rocks, a heart made of stone
But Spirit, you moved in me

At your touch my sleeping spirit was awakened
On my darkened heart the light of Christ has shone
Called into a kingdom that cannot be shaken
Heaven’s citizen by grace and grace alone

So I’ll stand in faith by grace and grace alone
I will run the race by grace and grace alone
I will slay my sin by grace and grace alone
I will reach the end by grace and grace alone
