’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come
It’s grace has brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures
He will my shield and portion be
As long as life endures.

Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail
And mortal life shall cease
I shall possess, within the veil
A life of joy and peace.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow
The sun forbear to shine
But God, who called me here below
Will be forever mine.
