Ephesians 2:8-9 says that people are saved by grace through faith, not by any works they can do. Grace comes through faith in Jesus Christ, and this faith is not a one time mental assent that has no bearing on the rest of life, but is rather a constant trust in Jesus. The song "Cling to Christ" describes the depth of blessing that comes from holding fast to Christ in the midst of life's difficulties. 


Cling to Christ

Father, I can come to You
And boast of deeds I’ve done
In my pride I strive to earn
The favor Christ has won
He alone pleads my acceptance
All my works aside
So I come with empty hands
And I cling to Christ

Father, I can go astray
And battle needless fears
Voices tell me I’m condemned
And that I can’t draw near
But Your Spirit calls me homeward
With Your words of life
Jesus bore my every sin
So, I cling to Christ

It’s more than I can do
To keep my hold on You
But all my hope and peace
Is that You cling to me

Father, all my earthly aims
In time will turn to dust
Let me learn that loss is gain
For those who know Your love
All the treasures of this world
Will never satisfy
You alone are endless joy
So, I cling to Christ
