All Sufficient Grace



I can hear hear my Savior say,
Strength shall be equal to your day,
Then I rejoice in what I face,
Leaning on all-sufficient grace.

I’ll glory in infirmity,
That Christ's own power may rest on me:
When I am weak, then am I strong,
Grace is my shield, and Christ my song.

All Sufficient grace- nothing can replace
The grace Christ gives to meet our need
Sufficient grace is what we plead.

When we are weak, our strength is Christ
The only force that will suffice
So this empowering we shall seek:
Power perfected in those who are weak

I can do all things, or can bear
All suff'rings, if my Lord be there;
Sweet pleasures mingle with the pains,
While his left hand my head sustains.

But if the Lord be once withdrawn,
And we attempt the work alone,
When new temptations spring and rise,
We find wherein our weakness lies

When we are weak, our strength is Christ
The only force that will suffice
So this empowering we shall seek:
Power perfected in those who are weak

All Sufficient grace- nothing can replace
The grace Christ gives to meet our need
Sufficient grace is what we plead.

2 Cor. 12:7,9,10.
