'Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus

How great is our God, clothed in majesty. He wraps himself in light, and darkness tries to hide.
Oh, how He loves us.
I am His new creation, by water and the Word.
For Him I sing I dance, rejoice in this divine romance.
From heaven He came and sought me, to be His holy bride!
(Heaven meets earth like an unforeseen kiss.)
I'm just a dead man, lying on the carpet, can't find a heartbeat!
But, amazing Grace! How sweet the sound that saves a wretch like me.
Alas, and did my savior bleed, and did my Sovereign die.
With His own blood He bought me, and for my life He died.
Would he devote that sacred head for sinners such as I?
I will glory in my Redeemer, whose priceless blood has ransomed me.
My chains are gone, I've been set free!
T'was Grace my fears relieved.
All of a sudden, I am unaware of these earthly afflictions eclipsed by glory.
How great, how glorious, are His ways.
Immortal, invisible God only wise, most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days!
We blossom and flourish but quickly grow frail, we wither and perish but He never fails!
Not what my hands have done, can save my guilty soul.
To see the law by Christ fulfilled, to hear His pardoning voice, changes a slave into a child, and duty into choice.
I bless the Christ of God, I rest on love divine,
because before the throne of God above, I have a strong and prefect plea. My name is graven on His hands, my name is written on His heart, for God, the Just, is satisfied!
I will glory in my Redeemer, my life He bought, my love He owns, I have no longings for another, I'm satisfied in Him alone. I will glory in my Redeemer, His faithfulness my standing place, though foes are might and rush upon me, my feet are firm, held by His grace.
