Full Text

1 Grace, when the sun is shining, Lord,
When the sky is black;
Grace, when I hear the unkind word,
Or am off the track;
Grace, when I’m elbowed in a nook
Till I cannot turn;
Grace, when the dinner will not cook,
When the fire won’t burn.

Grace, grace, all the way,
Grace, grace, every day;
Grace, more grace from Thee,
Lord, for me.

2 Grace, when my duties all go wrong,
When they seem all right;
Grace when ’tis gladness, praise, and song,
When I have to fight;
Grace, when my clothes are fresh and new,
When they’re worn and old;
Grace, when my purse is empty, too,
When it’s full of gold. [Refrain]

3 Grace, when the saved ones don’t act saved,
And lay blame on me;
Grace, when the grace I’ve asked and craved
Seems denied by Thee.
Grace, when the midnight hours I tell,
When the morn is nigh;
Grace, when I’m healthy, strong and well,
When I come to die. [Refrain]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
