Magnificent free grace, arise

Magnificent free grace, arise

Published in 5 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.
