Grace.  Rom. 3. 24;  Eph. 2. 5-8;  2 Tim. 1. 9

P. Doddridge                        S.M.

1
Grace! ’tis a charming sound,
Harmonious to the ear;
Heaven with the echo shall resound,
And all the earth shall hear.

2
Grace first contrived a way
To save rebellious man,
And all the steps that grace display
Which drew the wondrous plan.

3
Grace first inscribed my name
In God’s eternal book;
’Twas grace that gave me to the Lamb,
Who all my sorrows took.

4
Grace taught my soul to pray,
And pardoning love to know;
’Twas grace that kept me to this day,
And will not let me go.

5
Grace all the work shall crown,
Through everlasting days;
It lays in heaven the topmost stone,
And well deserves the praise.
