Marvelous Grace

Julia H. Johnston, 1910

Verse 1
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 spilt.

Chorus
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
      [Marvelous grace, infinite grace]
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
      [Marvelous grace, infinite grace]
Grace that is greater than all our sin.

Verse 2
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.

Chorus
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
      [Marvelous grace, infinite grace]
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
      [Marvelous grace, infinite grace]
Grace that is greater than all our sin.

Verse 3
Dark is the stain that we cannot hide.
What can avail to wash it away?
Look! There is flowing a Crimson Tide,
Brighter than snow you may be today.

Chorus
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
      [Marvelous grace, infinite grace]
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
      [Marvelous grace, infinite grace]
Grace that is greater than all our sin.
