4. My Grace Is Sufficient for Thee

1 When sinful and burdened and weary
From bondage I longed to be free,
There came to my heart the sweet message:
“My grace is sufficient for thee.”

Refrain:
“My grace is sufficient for thee,
“My grace is sufficient for thee.”
He strengthens my soul with His promise:
My grace is sufficient for thee.

2 Tho’ tempted and sadly discouraged,
My soul to this refuge will flee,
And rest in the blessed assurance—
“My grace is sufficient for thee.” [Refrain]

3 O Lord, I would press on with courage,
Tho’ rugged the pathway may be,
Sustained and upheld by the promise:—
“My grace is sufficient for thee.” [Refrain]

4 Soon, soon will the warfare be over,
My Lord face to face I shall see,
And prove as I dwell in His presence:—
His grace was sufficient for me. [Refrain]
