10 Songs And Hymns About Grace
One of the greatest gifts that God gives us is his grace. He doesn’t turn away any sinners who seek redemption, and we don’t have to prove that we deserve forgiveness because we simply do not. Worshipping God’s neverending grace through song strengthens our faith and lets us express our gratitude.
Here are 10 songs and hymns about God’s grace.

4. “The Gospel” by Jonathan & Melissa Helser
Favorite Lyrics: And they say that love only comes to those who deserve it. And forgiveness only comes when you can earn it. But what do they know about grace?
