A Favorite Hymn

Every Sunday Rebecca posts a favorite hymn on her blog. I always visit her site on Sundays (and the rest of the week too) to see which hymn she has posted. Today Rebecca (see photo) is battling a severe headache and wasn't able to include a hymn. I've posted one of my favorites. Being a pianist, I love to play (and sing) this old hymn written by Julia H. Johnston.


Marvelous grace of our loving Lord,
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt!
Yonder on Calvary’s mount outpoured,
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilled.


Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin.

Sin and despair, like the sea waves cold,
Threaten the soul with infinite loss;
Grace that is greater, yes, grace untold,
Points to the refuge, the mighty cross.

Dark is the stain that we cannot hide.

What can we do to wash it away?
Look! There is flowing a crimson tide,
Brighter than snow you may be today.

Marvelous, infinite, matchless grace,

Freely bestowed on all who believe!
You that are longing to see His face,
Will you this moment His grace receive?
