Oh, how wondrous the grace

Oh, how wondrous the grace of our God, 
how sweet and how joyous the thought,
that Christ ransomed our souls with his blood, 
for us he salvation has bought! 

                            Oh, how deep are the riches of grace, 
                            how great is the love Christ has shown, 
                            when he stood in the poor sinner's place. 
                            No love like his ever was known. 

We were sunk in the ruins of sin, 
but swiftly he came to our aid. 
Over our foes he did victory win, 
for us, peace with God he has made.                 (Refrain)

We are saved by the grace of our God, 
and are kept by his power and love.
All our sins washed away in the blood, 
each day we his faithfulness prove.                     (Refrain)
