Ninety-Third Psalm 31t

Tune: Lucius Chapin, 1812
Alto: Wilson Marion Cooper, 1902
Lyrics: Philip Doddridge, 1755
Meter: Short Meter (6,6,8,6)
Grace! ítis a charming sound,
Harmonious to the ear;
Heavín with the echo shall resound,
And all the earth shall hear.

Grace first contrived the way
To save rebellious man;
And all the steps that grace display,
Which drew the wondrous plan.

Grace taught my wandíring feet
To tread the heavínly road;
And new supplies each hour I meet,
While pressing on to God.

Grace all the work shall crown,
Thru everlasting days;
It lays in heavín the topmost stone,
And well deserves our praise.
