Mr. Haldor Lillenas, born in 1885, Norway, was a music enthusiast and a pastor. He had written various gospel songs and had his own publishing house. In 1917, a time when he and his wife were about to complete building their own home, ๐—ฝ๐—ฎ๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐˜๐˜† ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜† ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐˜€ ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜ƒ๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—น๐—ฒ.

Yet, it was not possible at that moment. 

 

Eventually, he sold one of his hymns which was composed, “Wonderful Grace of Jesus.” This hymn cost 5 dollars and was sufficient to pay for the organ.

 

The hymn is written and played in an upbeat tune to lift spirits and to bring a sense of awe of God’s matchless grace. Yet, Lillenas warned, not to play the hymn too fast that could draw the focus out on God’s wonderful grace.

In 2 Corinthians 12:9, Paul wrote, And He said unto me โ€œMy grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.โ€ How powerful could it be that the ๐ ๐ซ๐š๐œ๐ž ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐†๐จ๐ would be ๐ž๐ง๐จ๐ฎ๐ ๐ก? It is greater than the sins we have, higher than the skies above, wider than the universe we are at, and deeper than the core of this earth. Words are not enough to describe His grace extended to us. Grace is for everyone.

 

May we be of good cheer for God’s grace will never fail.
