Grace! 'Tis a charming sound,
Harmonious to the ear;
Heav'n with the echo shall resound,
And all the earth shall hear.

GRACE! 'tis a charming Sound,, Stanza 1
Grace first contrived the way
To save rebellious man;
And all the steps that grace display,
Which drew the wondrous plan.

GRACE! 'tis a charming Sound,, Stanza 2
Grace taught my wand'ring feet
To tread the heav'nly road;
And new supplies each hour I meet,
While pressing on to God.

GRACE! 'tis a charming Sound,, Stanza 3
Grace all the work shall crown
Through everlasting days;
It lays in heav'n the topmost stone,
And well deserves our praise.

GRACE! 'tis a charming Sound,, Stanza 4
