Verse 1:
D              G/B    A/C♯

Of grace and love the Author
Work repentance deep within
And bend me at Your altar
Melt my heart with majesty
Then show my ruined self to me
Teach me to more clearly see
Your might and will to save me

Here I place without reserve
My soul in faith and meekness
Trusting in Christ's power and love
To flourish in my weakness
Cause my days on earth to be
Through time and through eternity
A trophy of His victory
A monument to mercy

Teach me to behold my God
And trust His power to save me
Arms outstretched in constant love
Whose strength will never fail me
Help me to commune with Him
Depend and follow after Him
That through my life His peace will reign
And joy be my companion
