#219: Grace! ‘Tis a Charming Sound

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


Grace! ’tis a charming sound, Harmonious to the ear;

Heav’n with the echo shall resound, And all the earth shall hear.


Saved by grace alone! This is all my plea:

Jesus died for all mankind, And Jesus died for me.


‘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 wand’ring feet To tread to heav’nly road;

And new supplies each hour I meet, While pressing on to God.



Grace taught my soul to pray, And made mine eyes o’erflow,

‘Twas grace which kept me to this day, And ill not let me go.



O let Thy grace inspire My soul with strength divine;

May all my pow’rs to Thee aspire, And all my days be Thine.
