by Paul Mayes Jamar
Holy grace of God That gives us salvation. Even in sin’s grasp so odd, We have blessed redemption. We have done nothing To deserve being saved. It is God’s gift I sing That our sins have been waived. To sit together in Heavenly Places in the name of Jesus, Who is the only way to Heaven you see, And the Master and King of us. God’s gifts of grace Enable me to rise above, The best of the human race, I am filled with God’s love. Yes, I may die in a moment, But Paradise does await, And all the time with Jesus spent Adds up to rewards, He did state. So, join me and believe In Jesus Christ our Lord. Then Heaven you will receive, So come and jump aboard.
