479: SOFT the voice of mercy soundedby Thomas Kelly (1769-1854)
1 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.
2 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.
