lyrics

1. Sovereign grace o’er sin abounding!

Ransomed souls, the tidings swell;

’Tis a deep that knows no sounding;

Who its breadth or length can tell?

On its glories, on its glories,
Let my soul for ever dwell!
On its glories, on its glories,

Let my soul for ever dwell!

2. What from Christ that soul can sever,

Bound by everlasting bands?

Once in Him, in Him for ever,

Thus the eternal cov’nant stands:

None shall pluck thee, none shall pluck thee,

From the Strength of Israel’s hands.
None shall pluck thee, none shall pluck thee,

From the Strength of Israel’s hands.

3. Heirs of God, joint-heirs with Jesus,

Long ere time its race begun;

To His Name eternal praises;

O what wonders He hath done!

One with Jesus, one with Jesus,

By eternal union one.
One with Jesus, one with Jesus,

By eternal union one.

4. On such love, my soul, still ponder,

Love so great, so rich, so free;

Say, while lost in holy wonder,

“Why, O Lord, such love to me?”

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Grace shall reign eternally.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Grace shall reign eternally.
