381. Grace Has a Thrilling Sound

1 Grace has a thrilling sound
To each believer's ear;
That peace with God through Christ is found
Is news I gladly hear.

2 Grace first inscribed my name
In God's eternal book,
And grace has brought me to the Lamb,
Who all my sorrows took.

3 Grace led my wand'ring feet
To tread the heav'nly road,
And grace supplies each hour
I meet While pressing on to God.

4 Grace taught my soul to pray
And made my eyes o'erflow;
His grace has kept me to this day
And will not let me go.

5 Grace all our work shall crown
Through everlasting days;
The heav'nly home God gives his own
Shall echo with our praise.
