Grace! ’tis a charming sound,

Harmonious the ear;

Heav’n with the echo shall resound,

And all the earth shall hear.


‘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


All sufficient grace!

Never powerless!

It is Christ who lives in me,

In His exhaustlessness
