Wonderful grace

Full Text

1 The news of salvation with joy I have heard,
My soul thrills with rapture at each precious word;
I long to proclaim to the sin-weary race
The wonderful story of Christ and His grace.

Wonderful grace! wonderful grace!
My soul Jesus saves by His wonderful grace;
His promise is mine, I shall look on His face,
O wonderful story of grace!

2 The price is all paid, from my foes I am free,
His life blood He gave as a ransom for me:
Of sins that were scarlet remains not a trace,
For I am made pure by His wonderful grace, [Refrain]

3 And since by His marvelous pow’r I am whole,
I only would know “Is it well with your soul”?
For oh, I would tell every one, every place,
The wonderful story of wonderful grace. [Refrain]
