Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Magnificent free grace, arise

Magnificent free grace, arise

Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Magnificent free grace, arise,
Outshine the thoughts of shallow men;
Sovereign, preventing all surprise,
To him that neither willed nor ran.

2 Grand as the bosom whence thou flowed,
Kind as the heart that gave thee vent;
Rich as the gift that God bestowed,
And lovely like the Christ he sent.

3 Sin reigned to death; but over sin
And death, with more impartial sway,
Grace spreads her more extensive reign,
And does eternal life convey.

4 For us Salvation wide displays,
Her ample all-refreshing wing;
Safe in the shade free grace we praise,
And all its peerless glories sing.
