Verse 4 of 52!

My fourth verse for this count-down is Romans 5:15:
"But not as the offense, so also is the free gift. For if through the offense of one, many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift of grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many."

God's grace is so amazing!! I love the words to the hymn "Grace Greater than Our Sin:" 

(Words by Julia Johnston)
Marvelous grace of our loving Lord,
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt.
Yonder on Calvary's mount out-poured,
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilt.

Sin and despair like the sea wave cold,
Threaten the soul with infinite loss.
Grace that is greater, yes, grace untold,
Points to the Refuge, the the mighty cross.

Dark is the stain that we cannot hide.
What can avail to wash it away?
Look there is flowing a crimson tide,
Brighter than snow you may be today!

Marvelous, infinite, matchless grace,
Freely bestowed on all who believe!
You that are longing to see His face,
Will you this moment His grace receive?

Grace, grace, God's grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within!
Grace, grace, God's grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin!

Praise God for His wonderful, matchless grace that saves sinners like me!!
