138. Soft the Voice of Mercy Sounded

by T. Kelly
Soft the voice of mercy sounded,
Sweet as music to the ear.
"Grace abounds where sin abounded";
This the word that soothed our fear.
Grace, the sweetest sound we know,
Grace to sinners here below.
Romans 5:20; Romans 3:24
Grace, we sing, God's grace through Jesus;
Grace, the spring of peace to man;
Grace, that from each sorrow frees us;
Grace, too high for thought to scan;
Grace, the theme of God's own love;
Grace, the theme, all themes above.
“Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.” (Romans 5:20)
“Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” (Romans 3:24)
