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
