1
Sovereign grace o'er sin abounding:
 
Ransomed souls the tidings swell!
 
'Tis a deep that knows no sounding;
 
Who its length or breadth can tell?
Romans 5:20; Ephesians 2:7
2
Saved by Christ, we're free forever,
 
This the Spirit's voice declares!
 
Death, nor life, nor aught can sever
 
Jesus from the chosen heirs.
Romans 8:16; Romans 8:38-39
3
Souls above, in His communion,
 
Now with Him from conflict rest,
 
While below, with Christ in union,
 
We can sing how saints are blest.
Revelation 14:13; 1 John 4:13
“Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.” (Romans 5:20)
