1 Grace, ’tis a charming sound,
Harmonious to the ear;
Heav'n with the echo shall resound,
And all the earth shall hear.
2 Grace first contrived the way
To save rebellious man,
And all the steps that grace display
Which drew the wondrous plan.
3 Grace first inscribed my name
In God’s eternal book;
’Twas grace that gave me to the Lamb,
Who all my sorrows took.
4 Grace led my wand'ring feet
To tread the heav'nly road;
And new supplies each hour I meet,
While pressing on to God.
5 Grace taught my soul to pray
And made mine eyes o’erflow;
’Twas grace which kept me to this day
And will not let me go.
6 Grace all the work shall crown
Through everlasting days;
It lays in heaven the topmost stone,
And well deserves the praise.
