Galleries of Grace



Amazing grace! look down, you skies,
To a vision of graces undreamed of
Wonder and gaze with all your eyes;
You heav'nly thrones, stoop from above,
And bow to this mysterious love.

Lord, by Your amazing magnificent grace
You create the WAY that justifies
The Son of God takes Adam's place;
Down on our world the Savior cries,
Stretches his arms, and bleeds, and dies.

Now in the galleries of grace
Are new exhibition is shown every day
Images  of our Saviors  face
The sin bearer  who stood in my place
The Lord of Salvation is on display

His mercies lay a sovereign claim
To all of our immortal praise.
Beauty that can never fade!
How are thy glories here displayed!
Oh, Great God, how bright they blaze!

Now in the galleries of grace
Are new exhibition is shown every day
Images  of our Saviors  face
The sin bearer  who stood in my place
The Lord of Salvation is on display

Agents of Mercy



Life goes on and on day by day
Hearts torn apart in every way
Help of the helpless help us be
Agents of mercy Lord for Thee

We are so in need of mercy
Mercy is our greatest need
So Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy
For your mercy Lord we plead

Judgment is within your power
We need your grace this very hour
Compassion and forgiveness
For all who repent and confess

We are so in need of mercy
Mercy is our greatest need
So Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy
For your mercy Lord we plead

Give us grace to be merciful
With forbearance and charity,
Showering pity on the pitiful
Agents of mercy we would  be.

We are so in need of mercy
Mercy is our greatest need
So Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy
For your mercy Lord we plead

Fountain of Grace


-->
To glorify the Living  spring,
Get down on your hands and knees
And to your heart’s satisfaction drink,
Till you have the refreshment  you need
And strength to go back down
And tell the people what you’ve found
All we can bring is our thirst to this place
Broken sinners, drink at the fountain of grace.

Yes the mighty fountain of grace
A neverending stream
Flows from the almighty giver of grace
From the One who reigns supreme
That our souls he might redeem!
Flow over us and cleanse us, river of grace

Like the deer pants for the  waterbrook
So our souls long after you!
When to the source of life we look
Our souls are refreshed  and renewed
So go down to your knees
Let it take you to the depths of the Crystal Sea
To stand where God's throne is placed
Broken sinners, drink at the fountain of grace.

Yes the mighty fountain of grace
A neverending stream
Flows from the almighty giver of grace
From the One who reigns supreme
That our souls he might redeem!
Flow over us and cleanse us, river of grace
