It is not of myself, this gift I enjoy

Nothing that I have done or will do

Gains for me this incredible blessing

I am powerless to accomplish

The smallest, least little portion

Of all that I have gained and will gain

It is not nor has it ever been


Of me


All I have, all I ever hope to gain

Is solely through the love of God

In no other source do I find blessing

Peace, assurance of salvation

Than in His freely given love

Alone of all the things that are

His love removes the stain from my life


It is not of Myself, this Gift
