~ Salvation Is Receiving ~

by Cindy Wyatt


Salvation is not in giving,

but in receiving

trusting Jesus in our heart

and on his name believing


Salvation is not in doing,

but what has been done,

the payment for our sins

on the cross by God's own son


Salvation is not earned,

but is a free gift

purchased by Jesus' blood,

out of our sin to eternal bliss


Salvation is not trying to be good

or our life readjusting

but admitting we are a sinner

and in Jesus trusting


Salvation is being rescued

from the torments of hell

when drinking the living water

from Jesus' everlasting well


Salvation cannot be lost

and will last throughout eternity

When this earthly life is over

forever with Jesus we will be
