He Giveth More Grace



This beautiful hymn was running through my head the other day ~
May it be a blessing to your heart as it has been to mine.

He Giveth More Grace

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

~ Refrain ~

His love has no limit,
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!

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.

~ Refrain ~

His love has no limit,
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!

Annie J. Flint (1866-1932)

Hi Camille!
I wish we sang more of the older hymns in our church. But I do remember singing this one a time or two. It is a comfort to know that no matter what, He gives more grace!
I wanted to let you know that I received my first Answers Magazine! I am excited to have a moment to sit down and browse through it. When I am done I think I will give it to my daughter for her and granddaughter to have for homeschooling. Thank you so much for the subscription. It will be enjoyed many times over!
Blessings!

Lady Farmer ~ I agree with you...the old hymns are precious and full of wonderful truths! How blessed we are to have His Grace for all that we are called to in this life!

I am so glad the magazine arrived ~ may the Lord use it to be a blessing in your lives. :)

Have a lovely weekend!
Love,
Camille

Camille,
I'm not even sure what to say. I got a little something in the mail that brought me to tears...sweet, God-honoring encouragement from a dear sister thousands of miles away...whose path crossed mine from a "random" internet google...which lead me to Michelle's blog, and then to yours...of course it wasn't "random," it was the divine hand of God crossing our paths. I thank God for you. Thank you for your precious and sweet encouragement to me.

And now, what a beautiful hymn, timely posted. Thank you so very much for your tender, thoughtful words of encouragement. I am thankful for you, dear sister in Christ.

This ministers to me greatly today. I am not doing so well, feel like I am at the end of all I have . . .but to remember He giveth more grace! Thank you sister.

Also, we are enjoying our AIG, thank you so very much. Such a generous gift.

Camille, have a lovely week and may you sense Christ every moment.

J ~ I am thankful for you and your friendship ~ it would be lovely to have that cup of tea together one day! As for the encouragement...it comes from the Lord...He is the ONE that moves my heart to do the things I do...if I would only listen more! :)

Michelle ~ Oh this hymn has been such a blessing to me lately! Isn't it wonderful that God gave the gifts to some to put into words these wonderful thoughts? Oh yes! HE gives the grace...moment by moment...how blessed we are! May the Lord bless you this week my friend...day by day. I am so glad you are enjoying the magazine ~ it is from HIS loving hand.

With Love,
Camille

Speaking of music...all of your wonderful music on your blog reminds me to sit back and relax, when I'm busy and tired.
Thanks!
here is a verse that has ALWAYS helped me, that I think God has given me:
'Fear not for I am with you. Be not dismayed for I an your God. I will strengthen you, yes I will help you. I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.' Isaiah 41:10

Thanks again,
Meghan
