Hail! Grace Of God So Strong And Free†††

Don Fortner

(Tune: When I Can Read My Title Clear #497†† CMD)

Hail! Grace of God so strong and free,

†††††† Eternal, sovíreign grace!

†††††† Grace chose me from eternity,

†††††† And fixed in heavín my place!

 

Refrain:

Eternal, sovíreign grace!

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Eternal, sovíreign grace!

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Hail! Grace of God so strong and free,

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Eternal, sovíreign grace!

 

Grace found in Christ a Substitute

†††††† To bear the wrath of God,

†††††† Who put away my sin and guilt

†††††† By His own precious blood.

 

Though I was born a child of wrath,

†††††† Brought forth in sin and death,

†††††† And chose the path of wickedness,

†††††† Grace sheltered me from wrath.

 

And in the time of love grace came

†††††† Eternal life to give,

†††††† Spread oíer my soul Christís righteousness

††††† And said to me, ďNow live!Ē

 

Grace has these many years kept me.

††††† Godís grace can never fail!

††††† This song for all eternity

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Iíll sing within the veil -
