1 The grace of my Saviour is boundless and free,
His love like the ocean so deep;
He welcomes the sinners who enter his fold,
He guides them and calls them his sheep.

I’ll tell the sweet story of grace,
The story so old, but so new,
I’ll tell it to men ev’rywhere,
I’ll tell it, because it is true.

2 When far from my home in the desert of sin,
He brought me again to the fold;
His care was so tender, his love was so sweet,
The story can never grow old. [Refrain]

3 The path to my home is oft rugged and steep,
But strength for each day will be giv’n;
The grace that has saved me, most surely will keep,
And bring me at last safe to heav’n. [Refrain]

4 And when the dear Saviour I see on his throne,
And stand ‘mid the great ransomed throng,
The grace that has saved me, I there will proclaim,
And join in redemption’s glad song. [Refrain]
