The Grace of Jesus Christ

The great hymns of our faith share the truth of scripture. They remind us of God’s promises in times of trouble and relax our hearts when we are overcome with worry. Songs such as, How Great Thou ArtAmazing GraceBecause He Lives and It Is Well with My Soul, give voice to our praise, prayers and the rhythm of our heart.
