Abounding Grace

By Anonymous

Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound. Romans 5:20

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21

Who was delivered for our offenses, and was raised again for our justification. Romans 4:25

Where sin abounded, grace much more
Abounded by God’s love.
When Jesus for our sakes came down,
And left the throne above.

The rich One from the Glory bright,
For our sakes, was made poor,
And untold pain and anguish
On the cross He did endure.

They mocked Him, and derided Him,
With hatred in their face,
But in return, He offers them
His wondrous, matchless grace.

They scourged Him, and they buffeted,
With cruel, heavy blow,
But Jesus answered not a word,
Because He loved them so.

The very hatred in man’s heart,
Which nailed Him to the cross,
He used to bless His enemies.
To save their souls from loss.

The very spear that pierced His side,
By cruel, hateful man,
Brought forth the blood to cleanse their souls,
By God’s redemptive plan.

When awful hatred—matchless love,—
At Calv’ry’s cross did meet,
The Saviour wrought a finished work,
Atonement was complete.

O will you not accept this One,
Who suffered thus for thee?
Then peace, and rest, and joy are thine,
Throughout eternity.
