GRACE THAT CANNOT FAIL
(Tune: The Son Of God Goes Forth To War #412 CMD)
Astonished and by sin distressed,
A wretched worm unclean!
My heart's the source of every vice,
The seat of every sin!
Justice had seized my wretched soul,
I was condemned to die!
My just, eternal ruin I saw:
A sinner, I must die!
But then I heard the gospel sound,
How Christ for sinners died,
How God in Christ a ransom found
And justice satisfied!
The spirit gave me faith, and I
Believe the blessed Word.
I see my Savior crucified,
I'm pardoned by His blood!
Hail! Sovereign grace so rich and free,
That first devised the plan
To save a sinful wretch like me,
And carried out the plan!
Effectual grace! Effectual blood!
Grace that can never fail!
I praise You, my great, saving God,
For grace that cannot fail.
