we are singing this song Sunday. and WOW i LOVE the lyrics:
Now may the Lord reveal His face, And teach our stammering tongues
To make His sovereign, reigning grace the subject of our songs.
No sweet subject can invite a sinner's heart to sing,
Or more display the glorious right of our exalted King.
Grace reigns to pardon crimson sins, to melt the hardest hearts;
And from the work it once begins it never once departs.
The world and Satan strive in vain against the chosen few;
Secured by grace's conquering reign, they all shall conquer too.
Twas grace that called our souls at first; by grace thus far we've come;
And grace will help us through the worst, and lead us safely home.
