Grace Greater Than Our Sin
Words by Julia H. Johnston
Music by Daniel B. Towner

Romans 5:20
"Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound.
But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:"

          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.

            Chorus
            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.

            Chorus
            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.

          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.

            Chorus
            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.

          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?

            Chorus
            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.
