Sovereign Grace, O'er Sin Abounding

sovereign grace o'er sin abounding.
ransomed souls, the tidings swell;
'tis a deep that knows no sounding;
who its breadth or length can tell?
on its glories,
let my soul forever dwell.

what from Christ that soul can sever,
bound by everlasting bands?
once in Him, in Him forever;
thus th'eternal covenant stands.
none shall take thee
from the Strength of israel's hands.

heirs of God, joint-heirs with Jesus,
long ere time its race begun;
to His Name eternal praises;
o what wonders love has done!
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?
grace shall reign
grace shall reign
grace shall reign eternally.
tonight, kevin's sermon was about galatians 3:1-7. how do we grow in grace? the same way we started in it: the gospel.

my day had a crappy ending, and i wanted to blog on this song because of that. i need to do that necessary thing: "on such love, my soul, still ponder." there is grace enough for my crap. i need to quit focusing on the crap and focus on the Giver of the grace.

hallelujah! grace shall reign eternally.
