Lyrics

’Tis grace! ’tis grace! ’tis wonderful grace!
This great salvation brings;
The soul, delivered of its load,
In sweetest rapture sings.

Refrain

’Tis wonderful grace! ’Tis wonderful grace!
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful grace!
’Tis wonderful grace! ’Tis wonderful grace!
Flowing still, freely for me.

’Tis grace! ’tis grace! ’tis wonderful grace!
Which saves the soul from sin;
The power of rising evil slays,
And reigns supreme within.

Refrain

’Tis grace! ’tis grace! ’tis wonderful grace!
Its streams are full and free;
Are flowing now for all the race;
They even flow to me.

Refrain

’Tis grace! ’tis grace! ’tis wonderful grace!
Which bears the soul above;
The light which gleams from Jesus’ face
Is rapture, peace and love.
