Greater Grace

GRACE GREATER THAN OUR SIN
(Johnston/Towner)

Marvelous grace of our loving Lord,
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt,
Yonder on Calvaryís mount outpoured,
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilt.

Grace, grace, Godís grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, Godís grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin.

Dark is the stain that we cannot hide,
What can avail to wash it away?
Look! There is flowing a crimson tide;
Whiter than snow you may be today.

Grace, grace, Godís grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, Godís grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin.

Marvelous, infinite, matchless grace,
Freely bestowed on all who believe;
All who are longing to see His face,
Will you this moment His grace receive?

Grace, grace, Godís grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, Godís grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin.

AMAZING GRACE! HOW SWEET THE SOUND
(Newton, last verse anon. /19th century hymnal)

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now Iím found,
Was blind, but now I see.

ĎTwas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved;
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed!

Through many dangers, toils, and snares
I have already come;
ĎTis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

When weíve been there ten thousand years,
Bright shining as the sun,
Weíve no less days to sing Godís praise
Than when we first begun.
