Hymn/Song Information

Sovereign grace o'er sin abounding




Sovereign grace! o’er sin abounding,
Ransomed souls, the tidings swell;
‘Tis a deep that knows no sounding:
Who its breath or length can tell?
|:On its glories :|
Let my soul for ever dwell!


What from Christ the soul can sever,
Bound by everlasting bands?
Once in Him, in Him for ever,
This the eternal covenant stands:
|:None shall pluck thee :|
From the Strength of Israel’s hands.


Heirs of God, joint-heirs with Jesus
Long ere time its race began;
To His Name eternal praises,
O what wonders love hath done!
|:One with Jesus; :|
By eternal union one.


On such love, my soul, still ponder,
Love so great, so rich, so free!
Say, while lost in holy wonder,
Why, O Lord, such love to me?
|:Hallelujah! :|
Grace shall reign eternally.
