MY GOD, YOUR WAYS OF GRACE TO ME
(TUNE: O FOR A THOUSAND TONGUES #46 CM)
My God, Your ways of grace to me
Have overwhelmed my heart;
When I was full of enmity,
All grace was in Your heart!
Preserved in Christ, You kept me safe,
Though I ran fast to hell;
And to the pit I should have gone,
But You do all things well!
In love so great and mercy free,
By blood You ransomed me;
You sacrificed Your darling Son
From sin to set me free!
Your purposed grace, You never changed,
(My God, I thank You now!)
You sent Your Spirit, and to Christ
You made this sinner bow.
Lord, who am I, a worthless dog,
Before Your holiness,
That You should love and bless me so,
To save me by Your grace?
A monument of sovereign grace,
A sinner saved by blood,
Astounded by Your grace to me,
I praise You, O my God!
