Representative Text

1 I once was fettered, lone and sad,
But now I’m free and whole and glad;
No longer pleasures vain enthrall,
And Grace Divine has done it all.

Refrain:
All glory to the Lamb,
A child of God today I am!
Redeemed no more to fall,
And Grace Divine has done it all.

2 The Savior found me deep in night,
And let me to the plains of light;
No more in vain for help I call,
And Grace Divine has done it all. [Refrain]

3 The love that Christ has shown for me,
My sweetest song will ever be;
My greatest trials now are small,
And Grace Divine has done it all. [Refrain]

4 O ye who totter under sin,
Just let the love of Jesus in;
Your souls will sing, your burdens fall,
And Grace Divine has done it all. [Refrain]
