(Verse 1)
From the beginning of time was a plan
That all who believe understand:
Salvation is ours as a gift, through God's only Son.
Leaving Your glory on high,
Coming to suffer and die,
Rising again from the grave, the battle You won!

Saved by Your grace,
Freed by Your mercy.
Saved by Your grace,
Freed by Your mercy.
No more must I do,
No more can I say...
It is enough that You, my Lord,
Died in my place --
Such mercy and grace!

Now by Your Name I am known
Given a heavenly home
Resting secure in the grace that has freed me from sin.
Mercy, like rain from above
Showered upon me in love...
Now in Your mercy and grace, I'm rejoicing again...
Rejoicing again!

(Verse 2)
Bearing the burden of sin
And needing a heavenly Friend,
I learned of Your mercy and grace
In Your holy Word.
Life everlasting and free:
This is Your promise to me...
Words more amazing and true, I never have heard!

(Repeat chorus)
Saved by Your grace,
Freed by Your mercy.
Saved by Your grace,
Freed by Your mercy.
No more must I do,
No more can I say...
It is enough that You, my Lord,
Died in my place --
Such mercy and grace!

I too was surfing to see what songs there are to listen too. I found this one most enjoyable with wonderful words and would love to hear it sung in our church during our Sunday hour of praise.

I would love to be able to have this played in our church. Is there left hand music for it? My piano player would be happy to play it but needs help with this part. Thanks.

Truly if it was not by His mercy we could still be in wilderness. Great song with great words.

I love the music and words. It truly is a beatiful creation.
Just wondered if you would consider writing the left hand for the music scores to print. I do not have the ability to do so but would love to play some of these for our church. I am the pianist for our church but am not an accomplished player.
Thank you for any consideration.

Truly truly . . . He emptied Himself of that glory just to pay the death penalty that I am supposed to pay. Great is His love that He did it for you and me. Thank you for this very uplifting song for His great Majesty!

What I really wanted to know is how we could get the copyright to record this song on a church CD. We sang this in our church and it was marvelous. We are planning on making a CD of our music and would like to do this one, only by permission. We hold strong to copyright laws.
I wish I could hear the actual song being sung. God Bless
