Not To Ourselves We Owe

by Augustus Montague Toplady (1740-1778)

Tune: Summerfield S.M.

1 NOT to ourselves we owe
That we, O God, are Thine;
Jesus the Lord, our night broke through,
And gave us light divine.

2 The Father's grace and love
This blessed mercy gave,
And Jesus left the throne above,
His wandering sheep to save.

3 No more the heirs of wrath ---
Thy sovereign love we see;
And, Father, in confiding faith
We cast our souls on Thee.

4 Our hearts look up to see
The glory Thou hast given,
In spirit dwell where we shall be
With Christ, Thine heirs, in heaven.

5 With the adopted band
Soon shall we see Him there:
With them and Him in glory stand,
And in His honours share.
