"Soft the Voice
of Mercy Sounded"
Soft the voice of mercy sounded,
Sweet as music to the ear;
Grace abounds where sin abounded,
This the word that soothed our fear;
Grace, the sweetest sound we know,
Grace to sinners here below.
Grace we sing, God's grace through Jesus;
Grace, the spring of peace to man;
Grace, that from each sorrow frees us;
Grace, too high for thought to scan;
Grace, the theme of God's own love;
Grace, the theme all themes above.
~ By Thomas Kelly (1769-1854) ~
A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us
together with Christ, by (grace ye are saved;)
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of
yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man
should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ
Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that
we should walk in them.
But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far
off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
Oh the grace of God! We, who were far from God, are
made nigh through the blood of Christ Jesus! What a
blessing to know that we were sinners and now are called
Saints-- because we have been saved by grace through
faith! We do not have to "work" for our salvation but
it is offered freely to ALL who will receive God's only
Begotten Son. Grace now abounds where sin abounded.
Oh, we can never be "good enough" for Heaven--
but we are made righteous because of Christ Jesus!
God's grace-- salvation through Christ-- the most
awesome gift bestowed to us all!
To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he
hath made us accepted in the beloved.
