1 In looking thro' my tears one day,
I found Mount Calvary,
Beneath the cross there flowed a stream
Of grace, enough for me.

Chorus:
Grace is flowing from Calvary,
Grace as fathomless as the sea,
Grace for time and eternity,
Grace enough for me.

2 While standing there, my trembling heart,
Once full of agony,
Could scarce believe the sight I saw
Of grace, enough for me. [Chorus]

3 When I beheld my ev'ry sin
Nailed to the cruel tree,
I felt a flood go thro' my soul
Of grace, enough for me. [Chorus]

4 When I am safe within the veil,
My portion there will be,
To sing thro' all the years to come
Of grace, enough for me. [Chorus]
