Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

462. Grace! 'Tis a Charming Sound

1 Grace! 'tis a charming sound,
harmonious to my ear;
heav'n with the echo shall resound,
and all the earth shall hear.

2 Grace first contrived a way
to save rebellious man,
and all the steps that grace display
which drew the wondrous plan.

3 Grace taught my wand'ring feet
to tread the heav'nly road
and new supplies each hour I meet
while pressing on to God.

4 Grace all the work shall crown
through everlasting days;
it lays in heav'n the topmost stone,
and well deserves the praise.
