Representative Text

1 My glad heart is singing by day and by night,
My soul overflows with a wondrous delight,
My joy would I share with a sin-weary race,
For I have been saved by grace.

Saved! hallelujah! saved! hallelujah!
Saved by His wonderful, marvelous grace!
I'll sing of His love till I meet Him above,
For I have been saved by grace.

2 O would that my tongue with His truth were aflame,
For life would I give by the pow'r of His name;
Some day I shall look on His beautiful face,
For I have been saved by grace. [Chorus]

3 His mercy, His goodness can never be told,
And heaven alone shall His glories unfold,
And there He has gone to prepare me a place,
For I have been saved by grace. [Chorus]
