1. Salvation now has come to us
through God's free grace and favor.
Good works no aid can offer us,
nor are they our protector.
In faith on Jesus Christ we call,
who is sufficient for us all
and is our Intercessor.
2. All honor, blessing, thanks and praise,
for good gifts freely given
by God the Father, who by grace
does seek to see fulfilled
what He in us has now begun.
All honor to His name be sung,
whose holy name is blessed.
3. Your kingdom come, and may Your will
be done here and in heaven;
our needs for life my You fulfill,
and our sins be forgiven
as we forgive our debtors all;
guard us all from temptations’ thrall;
save us from evil! Amen!
