A Poor Brother's Hymnal
Friday, November 23, 2007
  O astonishing grace
Chords (Away with Our Fears):

O astonishing grace,
That the reprobate race
Should be so reconciled!
What a wonder that God is a child!

The Creator of all,
To repair our sad fall,
From his heaven stoops down,
And our nature, He joins to His own.

Immanuel came,
The world to redeem,
Incarnated showed
We may be united to God!

And shall we not hope,
After God to wake up,
His nature to know?
In sinless perfection below.

To this heavenly prize,
By faith let us rise
To his image ascend,
Apprehended, let us God apprehend.
