11993. Sufficient Grace

1 The cross is heavy—this I know—
But there’s a blessèd place
Where I can flee in time of need
And find sufficient grace.

Sufficient grace, sufficient grace,
His word now offers me;
And when I see Him face to face,
His grace my theme shall be.

2 When dark the storm around me rolls,
It cannot hide His face;
Then to the mercy seat I flee
And find sufficient grace. [Refrain]

3 And when the tempter comes, and would
God’s work in me efface,
Then to the Savior I will go
And find sufficient grace. [Refrain]

4 Tho’ oft I tread some thorny way,
Upon my Christian race,
I’m sure that always, day by day,
I’ll find sufficient grace. [Refrain]
