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
2
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)
