For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves it is the gift of God, not of works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9

Sunday Hymn




To the Praise of His Glorious Grace


By D. A. Carson


What astonishing mercy and power; in accord with His pleasure and will
He created each planet, each flower, every galaxy, microbe and hill;
He suspended this planet in space to the praise of His glorious grace,
To the praise of His glorious grace, to the praise of His glorious grace.


With despicable self love and rage, we rebelled and fell under the curse.
Yet God did not rip out the page and destroy all who love the perverse.
No, He chose us to make a new race, to the praise of His glorious grace,
To the praise of His glorious grace, to the praise of His glorious grace.


Providentially ruling all things to conform to the end He designed,
He mysteriously governs and brings His eternal wise plans into time.
He works out every step, every trace, to the praise of His glorious grace,
To the praise of His glorious grace, to the praise of His glorious grace.


Long before the creation began, He foreknew those He’d ransom in Christ;
Long before time’s cold hourglass ran, He ordained the supreme Sacrifice.
In the Cross He removed our disgrace, to the praise of His glorious grace,
To the praise of His glorious grace, to the praise of His glorious grace.




We were blessed in the heavenly realms long before being included in Christ.
Since we heard the good news, overwhelmed, we reach forward to seize Paradise.
We shall see Him ourselves, face to face, to the praise of His glorious grace,
To the praise of His glorious grace, to the praise of His glorious grace.
