Only by Grace (can we enter) - Gustafson

This short hymn about salvation was written by American song-writer, worship pastor, teacher and worship-consultant Gerrit Gustafson.

It was first published in 1990 by Integrity Music, and has since been covered by many artists, including Graham Kendrick.

It is set to an unnamed tune, also by Gustafson. This has a 4/4 time signature. In the key of C major, the first few notes of the melody are GGGG GF ED E_.

Several in-print hymn books provide sheet music for it, including McCrimmon's Celebration Hymnal for Everyone.

The lyrics are currently available in the comments under this video. A rough outline is:
Only by grace can we enter
Only by grace can we stand
Not by our human endeavor
But by the blood of the Lamb

Into Your presence You call us
You call us to come
Into Your presence You draw us
And now by Your grace we come
The verse and chorus are repeated in a number of different arrangements.
