Marvelous Grace

rom520 The below hymn was written by Julia Hariette Johnston who wrote approximately 500 hymn texts but is best known for this great hymn which first appeared in a compilation of hymns by Daniel B. Towner in 1911.

This hymn is all about grace, God’s grace, His amazing grace! This grace, His grace, does the the amazing work of salvation in the life of the believer. God’s grace points us to the Cross, and it enables us to be forgiven.

His marvelous grace! A grace that is far greater than ALL our sin.


Grace, Grace God’s Grace

Marvelous grace of our loving Lord,
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt!
Yonder on Calvary’s mount outpoured,
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilled.

Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin!

Sin and despair, like the sea waves cold,
Threaten the soul with infinite loss;
Grace that is greater, yes, grace untold,
Points to the refuge, the mighty cross.

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

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