Christ My Song - 1439
Grace is the sweetest sound
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Grace is the sweetest sound.
"Of faith, that it might be by grace." (Romans 4,16)
1. Grace is the sweetest sound
that ever reached our ears;
when conscience charged, and justice frowned,
'twas grace removed our fears. PDF - Midi
2. Grace is a theme indeed,
a hope-inspiring theme,
'tis all we can desire or need,
'tis more than fancy's dream.
3. 'Tis freedom to the slave,
'tis light and liberty;
it takes its terror from the grave,
'tis joy and victory.
4. Grace is a mine of wealth,
laid open to the poor;
grace is the sov'reign spring of health,
'tis life for evermore.
5. Of grace then let us sing,
a joyful, wondrous theme;
the God of grace is Israel's King,
and grace proceeds from him.
6. We hope to see his face,
with all the saints above,
and sing for ever of his grace,
for ever of his love.
Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 645.
