The Final Word with Music, Too.

September 23, 2017

The Bible literally ends this way:

The grace
of the Lord Jesus Christ
be with all the holy ones. Amen.

Revelation 22:21

I’ve had an earworm of a song running through my head, my heart, and my life yesterday and today.

It’s one of the many good pieces of the legacy of my time in a very conservative community of faith; I learned more there than I could ever have realized back then.

The lyrics themselves are powerful —

1 Marvelous grace of our loving Lord,
grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt,
yonder on Calvary’s mount out-poured,
there where the blood of the Lamb was spilt.

Refrain:
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.

2 Dark is the stain that we cannot hide,
what can avail to wash it away!
Look! there is flowing a crimson tide;
whiter than snow you may be today. [Refrain]

3 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? [Refrain]

The tune fits perfectly (…although, disclaimer alert, when I learned it we sang this about twice as fast…that’s how I hear it and sing it still, with a lot more energy than this version, but you’ll get the idea here) —

Putting it all together, so you can see it (might need to enlarge it on your screen) and sing it and play it at whatever tempo you’d like —
