Sovereign Grace O'er Sin Abounding

Sov'reign grace o'er sin abounding
Ransom'd souls, the tidings swell;
'Tis a deep that knows no sounding,
Who its breadth or length can tell?
On its glories On its glories
Let my soul for ever dwell!
On its glories On its glories
Let my soul for ever dwell!

What from Christ the soul can sever,
Bound by time its race begun:
Once in Him, in Him forever,
Thus th' eternal cov'nant stands.
None shall pluck thee None shall pluck the
From the Savior's mighty hands!
None shall pluck thee None shall pluck the
From the Savior's mighty hands!

Heirs of God, joint-heirs with Jesus,
Long ere time its race begun:To His name eternal praises,
O what wonders love to me?
One with Jesus, One with Jesus,
By eternal union one.
One with Jesus, 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! Hallelujah! 
Grace shall reign eternally!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! 
Grace shall reign eternally!

John Kent 1766-1843
