GRACE-SO-GLORIOUSRyan recently introduced me to this song. I want to add it to our church repertoire. I want to sing this song in a special way as a church. I want to sing with conviction, I want to sing with zeal, I want to sing as sinners redeemed, I want to join voices with the angels and all the generations past who put their trust in the glory of a our gracious God. There is an intangible power in a gathered community of believers when they sing. We as American’s are naturally more individualistic then many cultures who think more communally, but we must press beyond that and recognize that our praise is contagious. I want to taste a glimpse of heaven when we will all gather with saints form every tribe and tongue to sing, “WORTHY IS THE LAMB.”

This type of song points us up to the highest meaning human existence which magnify the Glory of God. PLEASE PLEASE get a copy of this song and learn it. I am challenging the whole church to practice this song so that we can sing it from the heart. I plan to play this song on easter sunday as a demonstration to all who walk into this church what we are about. We are about God’s glory. I want to sing in such a way that every visitor, every sceptic, and every wayward Christian, must wrestle with the reality of our worship. There are more resources about this song here.

Grace So Glorious

CCLI # 7011444

Written By: Pastor Steven Furtick, Israel Houghton, Chris Brown


Beneath the cross of Jesus Christ

No shadow remains for shame to hide

Redemption shone for all to see

Perfection bore our penalty

With a grace so glorious…


Immortal day the veil was torn

When mercy donned a crown of thorns

As law gave way to liberty

And freedom for humanity

With a grace so glorious.


Oh the glory of the Savior’s love

Surrounding our surrender

To know forever we are welcomed home


Crowned in glory to glory

Worthy is the Lord of all

The glory forever

Holy is the Lord


Triumphant praises without end

All hailing the King of righteousness

And every eye beholds the One

Our hearts were undeserving of

With a grace so glorious


O wondrous day when I will see

The face of Him who ransomed me

I’ll fall in worship at His feet

And rise to reign eternally

In a grace so glorious

In a grace so glorious
