Grace! 'tis a charming sound

  • Grace 'tis charming sound
  • Grace! 'tis a charming sound, Harmonious to the ear; Heav'n with the echo shall resound, And all the earth shall hear.
    • All sufficient grace! Never powerless! It is Christ who lives in me, In His exhaustlessness.
  • 'Twas grace that wrote my name In life's eternal book;
  • 'Twas grace that gave me to the Lamb, Who all my sorrows took.
  • Grace taught my wandering feet To tread the pilgrim road;
  • And new supplies each hour I meet While pressing on to God.
  • Grace taught my heart to pray,
  • And made my eyes o'erflow;
  • 'Tis grace which kept me to this day, And will not let me go.
  • Grace all the work shall crown Through everlasting days;
  • It lays in love the topmost stone, And well deserves the praise.
  • Oh, let that grace inspire My heart with strength divine;
  • May all my powers to Thee aspire, And all my days be Thine.
