Sin and Grace

Two of the themes I considered for this month were sin and grace. Sin convicts us, and grace restores us. This hymn captures both sides of the equations.

It was written by Julia Harriette Johnston (1849-1919). the daughter of a Presbyterian minister who served First Presbyterian Church, Peoria, Ill. Julia was the author of several books and many Sunday school lessons, as well as about 500 hymn texts. “Grace Greater than Our Sin” is probably the most well known and well loved. Listen and give thanks for God’s grace in your life today.
