1 Grace! 'tis a charming sound,
Harmonious to my ear;
Heav'n 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 taught my wand'ring feet
To tread the heav'nly road
And new supplies each hour I meet
While pressing on to God.
4 Grace all the work shall crown
Through everlasting days;
It lays in heav'n the topmost stone,
And well deserves the praise.
