66. The Gift of Grace

1 Uncounted years may not suffice
To understand the grace
Which furnished me a sacrifice
To suffer in my place.

Chorus:
Grace, wonderful grace,
Providing a pardon for me;
Grace, wonderful grace,
Offered so free on Calvary.

2 Not worlds of wealth or human worth
Could e'er redeem the lost,
The love which brought God's Son to earth
Alone could meet the cost. [Chorus]

3 In Him God's grace and justice meet,
The smitten Rock of God;
I take the living water, sweet,
He takes the smiting rod. [Chorus]

4 And can I look upon that face,
Still scarred with wounds for me,
And e'er forget that loving grace
Alone has set me free? [Chorus]
