The Florida Boys sing a great song called "Saved by Grace." Maybe you have never heard it or don't know the tune, but the words are so great and appropriate for this particular study:
He was a good man, he loved his wife.
All in all, he lived a quiet and decent life;
He helped his neighbor, he raised his kids,
But trusting Jesus is one thing he never did.
Yes, we should follow, where Jesus trod,
And make ourselves a living sacrifice to God;
But still we stumble as mortal men,
Praise Jesus' name, He paid the debt for every sin.
We stand condemned under the law.
When we break one, we're guilty of them all;
Deserving death, we need no alibi,
Pardoned by the law of Christ.
It's true, the road to hell is paved with good intentions,
For not by our good works are sin and death erased;
It's by Jesus' blood alone, we're forgiven and atoned;
Through our faith, we're saved by grace;
Through our faith, we're saved by grace.
