1 From the splendid courts of heaven,
Jesus saw my misery;
Thus He took my death upon Him
And gave all His life to me.
In the cross of Christ I glory;
It was there my sin was tried.
He declared my soul not guilty
By the grace His wound provide.

Grace amazing! Grace sustaining!
Grace unveiling Christ above.
Grace astounding! Grace abounding!
Grace surrounding me in love.
Grace surrounding me in love.

2 In the bitter wake of failure,
Bound by guilt I cannot stand,
Though unworthy, I find favor
As I view His nail-scarred hands.
In the cross of Christ I glory,
For His blood remains my plea;
By His all-forgiving mercy
He gives grace relentlessly. - Chorus

3 When Almighty God feels distant,
Far beyond my hurting heart,
There is healing in His silence,
For he's near me in the dark.
In the cross of Christ I glory;
He endured my blackest night,
Yet today His grave is empty;
I find grace in risen light. - Chorus

NEW! This PowerPoint File has been recently updated to our new format!

Updated Format! Beginning in November of 2016, we changed the way we formatted our PowerPoint files. The font is larger and the staff lines are bolder, making the songs easier to read from a greater distance, including smaller screens/monitors in the rear of the sanctuary.

All songs digitized previous to that date are in the "older" format.
