Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

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

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]
