Saved By Grace

Play

This hymn was one of Fanny Crosby’s favourite poems, known as her “sou’ls poem”. She said of it: “There is one hymn I have writ­ten which has never been pub­lished. I call it my soul’s po­em. Somet­imes when I am trou­bled, I re­peat it to my­self, for it brings comfort to my heart.” She shared this poem during one of Moody’s conferences.

Subsequently, George Stebbins wrote the music for this hymn.

Lyrics: Fanny J. Crosby
Music: George C. Stebbins

Some day the silver cord will break,
And I no more as now shall sing;
But oh, the joy when I shall wake
Within the palace of the King!

Refrain:
And I shall see Him face to face,
And tell the story—Saved by grace;
And I shall see Him face to face,
And tell the story—Saved by grace.

Some day my earthly house will fall.
I cannot tell how soon ’twill be;
But this I know—my All in All
Has now a place in Heav’n for me.

Some day, when fades the golden sun
Beneath the rosy tinted west,
My blessed Lord will say, “Well done!”
And I shall enter into rest.

Some day: till then I’ll watch and wait,
My lamp all trimmed and burning bright,
That when my Savior opens the gate,
My soul to Him may take its flight.

    Where do you get your arrangements of the hymns you play. They are simple but so nicely done.
