2. A hymn jointly authored by Philip Doddridge and Augustus Toplady, 'Grace 'Tis A Charming Sound.'

 

1 Grace, ’tis a charming sound,

Harmonious to mine ear;
Heaven with the echo shall resound,
And all the earth shall hear.

 

2 Grace first contrived the way
To save rebellious man;
And all the steps that grace display
Which drew the wondrous plan.

 

3 Grace first inscribed my name
In God’s eternal book;
’Twas grace that gave me to the Lamb,
Who all my sorrows took.

 

4 Grace led my roving feet
To tread the heavenly road;
And new supplies each hour I meet,
While pressing on to God.

 

5 Grace taught my soul to pray
And made mine eyes o’erflow;
’Twas grace which kept me to this day,
And will not let me go.

 

6 Grace all the work shall crown,
Through everlasting days;
It lays in heaven the topmost stone,
And well deserves the praise.

 

7 O let Thy grace inspire
My soul with strength divine
My all my powers to Thee aspire,
And all my days be Thine.

 

[ NB. Doddridge penned verses 1,2,4&6; Toplady added the others ].
