Manifold Grace

Representative Text

1 As water cold to fainting souls,
When fever burns within,
The gospel like a river rolls,
To quench the pow'r of sin.

Chorus:
O blessed news of wondrous pow'r,
The message we receive;
We take free grace this favor'd hour,
And on the Lord believe.

2 As welcome heralds from afar,
From fields of blood and strife,
The gospel tells of ending war,
Of peace, and joy, and life. [Chorus]

3 As joyful tidings of release,
To captives long oppress'd,
The gospel makes our bondage cease,
And brings the sinner rest. [Chorus]
