Hymns of the Past – Saving Grace

Can you imagine, dear ones, a subject more worthy of singing about than Gods saving grace? That He would save a wretch like me remains the greatest mystery in my mind! What love is this, that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us? Amazing, truly amazing grace! Beloved, I pray this hymn blesses you as its blessed me. As always, friends, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

All glorious God, what hymns of praise

Shall our transported voices raise!

What ardent love and zeal are due,

While heaven stands open to our view!

Once we were fallen, and O how low!

Just on the brink of endless woe:

When Jesus, from the realms above,

Borne on the wings of boundless love,

Scattered the shades of death and night,

And spread around His heavenly light:

By Him what wondrous grace is shown

To souls impoverish’d and undone!

He shows, beyond these mortal shores,

A bright inheritance as ours;

Where saints in light our coming wait

To share their holy, happy state.
