From: Tim Felten email@example.com WORDS:vs.1,2,4&6,Philip Doddridge(1702-1751);vs.3&5,Augustus M. Toplady,(1740-1778) MUSIC: Ira David Sankey(1840-1908) GRACE, 'TIS A CHARMING SOUND D Grace, ’tis a charming sound, A D Har-monious to mine ear; G Heaven with the echo shall resound, D A D And all the earth shall hear. CHORUS: D Saved by grace alone! G D This is all my plea: G Jesus died for all mankind, D/A A D And Jesus died for me. Grace first contrived the way To save rebellious man; And all the steps that grace display Which drew the wondrous plan. (REPEAT CHORUS) Grace first inscribed my name In God’s eternal book; ’Twas grace that gave me to the Lamb, Who all my sorrows took. (REPEAT CHORUS) Grace led my roving feet To tread the heavenly road; And new supplies each hour I meet, While pressing on to God. (REPEAT CHORUS) Grace taught my soul to pray And made mine eyes o’erflow; ’Twas grace which kept me to this day, And will not let me go. (REPEAT CHORUS) Grace all the work shall crown, Through everlasting days; It lays in heaven the topmost stone, And well deserves the praise. (REPEAT CHORUS) O let Thy grace inspire My soul with strength divine My all my powers to Thee aspire, And all my days be Thine. (REPEAT CHORUS)Home
