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

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]
