Nothing but the purest grace
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Nothing but the purest grace.

"By grace ye are saved." (Ephesians 2,5)

1. Nothing but the purest grace
  could have saved and set us free;
Saviour, when we see thy face,
  O what thanks we'll give to thee!
    How we'll tell to all around us,
    what we were when mercy found us!

2. We were then the heirs of woe,
  guilty, and condemned to die;
yet, not knowing it was so,
  we were in a dream of joy:
    such we were when mercy found us,
    so we'll tell to all around us.

3. We were foolish, we were blind,
  yet we fancied all was right;
darkness reigned within the mind,
  yet we thought that darkness light:
    such we were when mercy found us,
    so we'll tell to all around us.

4. We were foes, were foes to him,
  who himself to save us died;
from the world we sought esteem,
  and its favour was our pride;
    such we were when mercy found us,
    so we'll tell to all around us.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 660.
