Representative Text

1 The grace of God that brings salvation
And teaches righteousness,
Appeareth unto every nation,
Their darkened souls to bless.

Wondrous grace, pure gift from heaven!

2 His wondrous grace is all-sufficient,
And hours of deepest need
Are sanctified by God omniscient,
If we His promise plead. [Refrain]

3 Within the heart His grace abounding
Will give us pow’r to reign;
Through Jesus, when the foe’s surrounding,
The vict’ry we shall gain. [Refrain]

4 Our Father grace and glory giveth
In blessings manifold;
From him who pure before Him liveth,
No good will He withhold. [Refrain]
