New hymn based on Titus 3

Here’s a new hymn based on Titus 3:3-8. The metre is 8787D. We currently sing it to the tune of ‘Here is Love’.

We Were Foolish (God Our Saviour)

We were foolish, disobedient,
filled with malice, envy, spite.
But our Father showed us mercy,
and he saved us from our plight.
For God’s love appeared among us,
and it bore a human face.
God our Saviour, how we love you
for your kindness and your grace.

2. We were blinded, slaves to passions,
could not see the love he’d shown.
But the Spirit’s life washed through us,
made us new and led us home.
He was poured out on us freely
to renew our human race.
God our Saviour, how we love you
for your kindness and your grace.

3. We were facing condemnation,
but our Saviour took our place.
Jesus Christ has died to save us:
we are justified by grace.
We are heirs of life eternal,
we will see him face to face.
God our Saviour, how we love you
for your kindness and your grace.
