Sometimes only a hymn will do

I love Modern worship music.
But there is something about an old hymn that speaks to my soul. Maybe it's because I grew up with them, maybe it's the classic, flowery language but sometimes nothing will do like a hymn.
I don't hear them much anymore, but occasionally one will pop to mind.

Tonight this Chorus has been going over and over in my mind.

Grace, grace, God's grace, 
 grace that will pardon and cleanse within; 
 grace, grace, God's grace, 
 grace that is greater than all our sin! 
Marvelous grace of our loving Lord, 
 grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt! 
 Yonder on Calvary's mount outpoured, 
 there where the blood of the Lamb was spilt. 
Marvelous, infinite, matchless grace, 
 freely bestowed on all who believe! 
 You that are longing to see his face, 
 will you this moment his grace receive? 

I pray you're living in God's grace today.

Sometimes I like to pop in a CD of old hymns just because. There is just something special about them.
