He Giveth More Grace

One of my all time favorites, and one of the main songs I would want sung at my funeral:

Hymn lyrics by Annie J. Flint, 1862-1932
Music by Hubert Mitchell, 20th Century or
Joel A. Erickson, 2006

He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength when the labors increase;
To added afflictions He addeth His mercy,
To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.

When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources
Our Father’s full giving is only begun.

Fear not that thy need shall exceed His provision,
Our God ever yearns His resources to share;
Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing;
The Father both thee and thy load will upbear.

His love has no limits, His grace has no measure,
His power has no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.

  1. This hymn is also one of my favorites. There is something special about the words of this song. Each time I sing them (in the kitchen, in the car…) they move me again and again. The words are anointed and true. God used this song to help me believe that grace is indeed greater than our sins and sorrows. Thank you for posting it!
