Grace and grace alone sees us standing righteous, in Christ, before God. The lyrics of the song Good & Faithful Friend capture the beauty and compassion of a loving Saviour who time and again, rescues us from sin; who time and again, rescues us from ourselves.

It’s time to make a change
And turn my life around,
Press on towards the blood-stained cross
Where purity is found.

You lift me from the mire
Into the whitest snow.
How can it be with all my sin
A King would lead me home?

Though I keep falling
You keep calling out my name,
Then embrace me once again
What a good and faithful friend.
I know you’re grieving,
That’s why I’m leaving sin behind,
For the grace I’ll always find
From my good and faithful friend.

Lord open up my eyes
To see what you have seen.
I ask for your forgiveness
Where forgiveness has not been.

So rejoice my soul, rejoice,
The power of sin has gone.
Your mercy brought me to this place
Your grace will lead me home.

Though I keep falling
You still keep calling out my name,
Then embrace me once again
What a good and faithful friend.
I know you’re grieving,
My Lord I’ll be leaving sin behind,
For this grace I’ll always find
From my good and faithful friend.
