10. Grace Is the Sweetest Sound

S.M.
by T. Kelly, 1802
1
Grace is the sweetest sound
 
That ever reached our ears,
 
When conscience charged and justice frowned,
 
'Twas grace removed our fears.
Romans 2:15
2
'Tis freedom to the slave,
 
'Tis light and liberty;
 
It takes its terror from the grave,
 
From death its victory.
Romans 6:16-18; 2 Corinthians 4:6; Romans 8:21; 1 Corinthians 15:54-57
3
Grace is a mine of wealth
 
Laid open to the poor;
 
Grace is the sovereign spring of health;
 
'Tis life forevermore.
2 Corinthians 8:9; Romans 3:24; Romans 8:32; Psalm 42:11
4
Of grace then let us sing!
 
(A joyful, wondrous theme!)
 
Whom grace has brought, shall glory bring,
 
And we shall reign with Him.
John 1:17; 1 Peter 5:10; Colossians 3:4; 2 Timothy 2:12
5
Then shall we see His face
 
With all the saints above,
 
And sing forever of His grace,
 
Forever of His love.
Revelation 22:4; 1 Thessalonians 4:17; Revelation 1:5

“Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.” (Romans 6:16-18)

“So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:54-57)
“For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.” (2 Corinthians 8:9)
