Hymn : TLH 380 st. 1,3,5: Thy Works, not Mine, O Christ Hymnary.org link

1. Thy works, not mine, O Christ, 
Speak gladness to this heart; 
They tell me all is done, 
They bid my fear depart. 
To whom save Thee, who canst alone 
For sin atone, Lord, shall I flee? 

3. Thy cross, not mine, O Christ, 
Has borne the awe-full load 
Of sins that none could bear 
But the incarnate God. 
To whom save Thee, who canst alone 
For sin atone, Lord, shall I flee? 

5. Thy righteousness, O Christ, 
Alone can cover me; 
No righteousness avails 
Save that which is of Thee. 
To whom save Thee, who canst alone 
For sin atone, Lord, shall I flee?
