Sunday Hymn - Grace Unmeasured

We're singing this song today for the first time in our service. Although this isn't technically a hymn (although it has 2 verses and a chorus - hmmm... maybe it would fit the definition of a hymn), I love the words and the way they focus our attention on what God has done for us while still reminding us of the grace that is free to us for every day living.

The theme fits really well with what my husband is preaching on - the crucifixion. He's in chapter 27 of Matthew and will be spending a couple of weeks on the crucifixion.


Grace Unmeasured

Verse 1
Grace unmeasured, vast and free
That knew me from eternity
That called me out before my birth
To bring You glory on this earth
Grace amazing, pure and deep
That saw me in my misery
That took my curse and owned my blame
So I could bear Your righteous name

Chorus
Grace paid for my sins
And brought me to life
Grace clothes me with power
To do what is right
Grace will lead me to heaven
Where I’ll see Your face
And never cease
To thank You for Your grace

Verse 2
Grace abounding, strong and true
That makes me long to be like You
That turns me from my selfish pride
To love the cross on which You died
Grace unending all my days
You’ll give me strength to run this race
And when my years on earth are through
The praise will all belong to You

Chorus
Grace paid for my sins
And brought me to life
Grace clothes me with power
To do what is right
Grace will lead me to heaven
Where I’ll see Your face
And never cease
To thank You for Your grace

Bonnie,

This is from Sovereign Grace Music and they have the lead sheets & guitar chords available for free from their store: www.sovereigngracestore.com. You do have to sign in and "order" the downloads but they are free. It's a wonderful resource and one that I really appreciate.

Hi there, Juanita. I'm a home schooler, too, and just found your blog while looking for the lyrics to
"Grace Unmeasured." What a beautiful song about the Lord's mercy toward us! Thanks for posting it!
