I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service,  even though I was formerly a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent aggressor. Yet I was shown mercy because I acted ignorantly in unbelief; and the grace of our Lord was more than abundant, with the faith and love which are found in Christ Jesus.  It is a trustworthy statement, deserving full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, among whom I am foremost of all.  Yet for this reason I found mercy, so that in me as the foremost, Jesus Christ might demonstrate His perfect patience as an example for those who would believe in Him for eternal life.
 I Timothy 1:12-16

The lyrics of this Hymn move me deeply every time I sing it.  It is also one of my favorite ones.  God's merciful hand leads me to His kind WORDS to walk in WISDOM and KINDNESS toward others.  His precious blood cleanses me when I stumble.  He lifts me up!  His GOODNESS shows me the WAY to be good to my neighbors and to share the JOY He has taught me.  His grace reaches me.

Deeper than the ocean
and wider than the sea
is the grace of the Savior
for sinners like me

Sent from the Father
and it thrills my soul
Just to feel and to know
That His blood makes me whole


His grace reaches me
Yes, His grace reaches me
And ‘twill last thru eternity

Now I'm under His control
and I'm happy in my soul
Just to know
that His grace reaches me

Higher than the mountain
and brighter than the sun
it was offered at Calv'ry
for ev'ry one

Greatest of treasures
and it's mine today
Tho' my sins were as scarlet
He has washed them away


Does this Hymn stir you like it does me?
