1 Grace brought Jesus down to die,
Glory welcomed Him on high,
Grace revealed in dying love,
Glory from His throne above.

Refrain:
Saved by faith, in grace we rest,
Joy in hope of glory blest;
Those whom grace doth justify,
God will also glorify.

2 What to sovereign grace we own,
Coming glory soon will show,
Grace the sinner’s debts doth pay,
Glory makes us rich for aye. [Refrain]

3 Grace and glory all unfold,
No good thing will He withhold,
Grace, free grace, while here we roam,
Glory when we reach our home. [Refrain]

4 Grace, while journeying through the night,
Glory dawns at morning light,
Grace, the staff for pilgrim ways,
Glory’s crown for endless days. [Refrain]

5 In His absence, boundless grace,
Glory when we see His face,
Grace, till all the voyage o’er,
Glory, when we reach the shore. [Refrain]
