Representative Text

1 Oh, matchless, marvelous grace of God!
Oh, royal, kingly Word!
In toil and trial, grief and loss,
This promise sweet is heard.

Refrain:
My grace is sufficient for thee,
My grace is sufficient for thee,
Oh, precious, precious grace of God,
My grace is sufficient for thee.

2 “Sufficient grace,” the record stands,
Hast thou thine own received?
Thy faith shall measure thy supply,
Hast thou indeed believed? [Refrain]

3 For thee, for thee, oh, wondrous word!
Thy utmost need supplied,
Though thousand others claim the boon,
Thou shalt be satisfied. [Refrain]

4 The witness of ten thousand saints
Confirms the promise blest,
Let now the pow’r of this same word
In me be manifest! [Refrain]
