about

"Hymns can go with us wherever we are. They help us learn how to pray. They challenge us, comfort us. They teach us about God, and best of all, they remind us that we’re not alone in this life and that our sufferings are not unique to us. Grace & Peace music was launched with these ideas in mind, and it’s our hope that these hymns become a companion to many."

-Rick Barnes, founder

Track Name: How Vast the Benefits Divine
How vast the benefits divine
Which we in Christ possess
We are redeemed from guilt and shame
And called to holiness
But not for works which we have done
Or shall hereafter do
Hath God decreed on sinful men
Salvation to bestow

The glory, Lord, from first to last
Is due to thee alone
Aught to ourselves we dare not take
Or rob thee of thy crown
Our glorious Surety undertook
To satisfy for man
And grace was given us in him
Before the world began

This is thy will, that in thy love
We ever should abide
That earth and hell should not prevail
To turn thy Word aside
Not one of all the chosen race
But shall to heav'n attain
Partake on earth the purposed grace
And then with Jesus reign
Track Name: Great High Priest
Jesus, my great High Priest
Offered his blood and died
Offered his blood and died
My guilty conscience seeks
No sacrifice beside
No sacrifice beside

His pow'rful blood did once atone
And now it pleads before the throne
His pow'rful blood did once atone
And now it pleads before the throne

To this dear Surety's hand
Will I commit my cause
Will I commit my cause
He answers and fulfills
His Father's broken laws
His Father's broken laws

Behold my soul at freedom set
My Surety paid the dreadful debt
Behold my soul at freedom set
My Surety paid the dreadful debt

My Advocate appears
For my defense on high
For my defense on high
The Father bows his ears
And lays his thunder by
And lays his thunder by

Not all that hell or sin can say
Shall turn his heart, his love, away
Not all that hell or sin can say
Shall turn his heart, his love, away
Track Name: Throne of Grace (Approach, My Soul, the Mercy Seat)
Approach, my soul, the mercy seat
Where Jesus answers prayer
There humbly fall before his feet
For none can perish there

Thy promise is my only plea
With this I venture nigh
Thou callest burdened souls to thee
And such, O Lord, am I

Let us come and draw near
To the throne of grace
Where Jesus waits with open arms
At the throne of grace

Bowed down beneath a load of sin
By Satan sorely pressed
By war without and fears within
I come to thee for rest

Be thou my shield and hiding place
That sheltered near thy side
I may my fierce accuser face
And tell him thou hast died

O wondrous love to bleed and die
To bear the cross and shame
That guilty sinners such as I
Might plead thy gracious name
