Astounding Grace


1. Astounding grace that God the Son should choose
To leave His Father's glory and refuse
To clutch His dignity exploit His right
And make Himself a no-one in our sight

All praise Christ and His astounding grace
All praise His name
All praise Christ and His astounding grace
All praise His name

2. The Word made flesh the Son of God a man
The timeless one clothed in a mortal span
Now born of dust and in a manger laid
Transcendent God in human likeness made

3. Astounding grace that we should enter in
He tore the veil and cast away our sin
He saw our hate our dark and desperate lust
He bore our guilt and then declared us just

4. Astounding grace that Christ should suffer death
And know first-hand the grave's corrupting breath
The prince of life creation's gracious Lord
He paid the price that we could not afford
