GREAT GOD OF SOVEREIGN GRACE, WE BOW
God sits upon His throne by right,
Sov'reign over all things;
We gladly own His right to rule
And of His greatness sing.
Great God, our heav'nly Father,
We praise You for Your grace;
We trust Your Son, our Savior,
By whom we have all grace.
God, in His sovereign majesty,
Appointed Christ to save,
And every blessing of His grace
To us in Christ He gave.
According to His purposed grace
Toward His chosen race,
Our God predestined everything
To save us by His grace.
From everlasting our God rules
In matchless sovereignty,
Always performing all His will
And His all wise decree.
Great God of sovereign grace, we bow
Before Your glorious throne:
We praise You for Your gracious will
To save us by Your Son!
(Tune: Near to the Heart of God)
