(Verse 1)
In the grace of God, a gift so divine,
Salvation freely given, for your soul to find.
No merit can you bring, no deeds to repay,
For in Christ's sacrifice, we find the only way.

Sunrise Church, a beacon bright,
Guiding souls with heavenly light,
Bible truths, our steadfast creed,
Even if they're not the mainstream's lead.

(Verse 2)
No deeds, no toil, no righteous feat,
Can earn this grace, it's pure and sweet,
Acceptance found in faith alone,
Through Christ, our Savior, we are known.


(Bridge or verse, optional)
In His name, we find our strength,
With grateful hearts, we'll go to any length,
To share the love, the hope, the grace,
Of Jesus Christ, our saving embrace.

(Verse 3)
As we walk this path of grace,
Our works are signs of love's embrace,
Though not for merit, still we strive,
For heavenly rewards, we're kept alive.


(Verse 4)
So let it be known, this truth we share,
Salvation's gift, beyond compare,
No works required, just faith alone,
Through Christ, our Savior, we are known.


In the gift of salvation, we rejoice,
A love so deep, we lift our voice,
Sunrise Church, forever will proclaim,
The truth of Jesus, our Savior's name.


9/17/23 In the summer of 2022, I started writing a theme song for my church, Sunrise Church in
Chapel Hill NC. I finally dropped the project about 8 months later as I couldn’t seem to finish it.
Last week’s sermon along with today’s sermon finally gave me the impetus to finish to this song.
