Personalize your custom “Grace” project by clicking the button next to your favorite “Grace” title below...

Grace Scroll

恩 is often translated as "kind act from above", as in "The Grace of God".

This doesn't necessarily have to come from God. It could be a favor paid to you, or help that you received (or gave). Of course, you can decide for yourself whether the grace or favor given to you by a friend is actually a gift from God.

Other possible translations of this character:
Favor / favour, acts of kindness, merits, beneficial Influence, kindness, indebtedness, obligation, and benevolent influence.

gé lěi sī

Grace Scroll

格蕾絲 is the name Grace transliterated into Mandarin Chinese.

Please note: This sounds like grace but does not mean grace. If you want the meaning of grace, please choose a different title.


Grace Scroll

グレース is the name Grace in Japanese.

Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

tiān ēn

Grace from Heaven / Grace from God Scroll

天恩 is the deepest way to say "Heaven's Grace" or "God's Grace" in Chinese.

The first character means Heaven or sky (referring in this case to the domain of God).
The second character means grace, blessings, benevolence, favor/favour, acts of kindness, merits, or beneficial influence.

This title can also be defined as:
Blessings of Heaven, Favor of the Emperor, Divination's luckiest day, or blessings of nature. Note: When you see "Emperor" above, keep in mind that the Emperor, like the Pope is theoretically chosen by God, or seen as an emissary or conduit of God in ancient Asian culture. It would only be read that way in a certain context such as, "The Emperor, in his mercy, bestowed upon him Heaven's Grace and the prisoner was set free".

Note: Technically, this is a Japanese word too (pronounced "ten-on") but it’s rarely used in Japan anymore. Therefore, this title is best if your audience is Chinese.

kami no on kei

Grace from Heaven / Grace from God Scroll

神の恩恵 means God's Grace in Japanese.

The first two characters act to create a word that means "divine", "God's", or "The Spirit's".

The last two Kanji mean grace, favor/favour, blessing, or benefit.

qí yì ēn diǎn

Amazing Grace Scroll

奇異恩典 is the title, "Amazing Grace" in Chinese.

The first two characters can also mean amazing, fantastic, exotic, astonishing, odd, strange, wonderful, extraordinary, uncommon, or rare.

The last two characters mean "grace", as in "grace or favor of/from God".

Grace / Favor Scroll

恩典 is one of several ways to express favor or grace in Chinese characters, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

This version can refer to an act of grace or the granting of a special privilege.

ameijingu gureisu

Amazing Grace Scroll

アメイジング・グレイス is the Japanese Katakana for Amazing Grace.

This phonetically sounds like the English, "Amazing Grace" but does not hold that meaning since it is a transliteration versus a translation.

Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.


Mary-Grace Scroll

This is the name Mary-Grace in Japanese.

Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana, it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.

Charm / Grace Scroll

神韻 is the Chinese and Japanese word for charm or grace (in poetry or art) or exceptional artistry.

Grace / Favor Scroll

恩寵 means grace or favor in Chinese characters, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.

In ancient China, this was a special favor bestowed from a ruler. It could also be the Emperor's generosity towards a favorite person or concubine.

Divine Grace Scroll

天佑 is a Chinese and Japanese word that means divine aid, divine grace, Heaven blessed, or providential help.

Some Chinese people will use this to infer that this means a home or family blessed by heaven or God. 天佑 is the shortest way to express that idea anyway.

Elegant / Exquisite / Grace Scroll

Beyond elegant and exquisite elegance, this is also the word used to say "beautiful" or "marvelous" when referring to a work of art.

Can also be translated as exquisiteness, gracefulness.

Note: Not a commonly used word in Japanese.

shin kei

Grace of God / Divine Blessing Scroll

This can be translated as, "God's Blessing", "Blessed by God", or "Divine Blessing" in Japanese Kanji.

Divine Protection Scroll

加護 is Japanese for "divine protection" or "the saving grace of God".

Please consider this blessing to be Japanese only. This can have the same meaning in the context of Buddhism in Chinese but it's also a nickname for "intensive care" at Chinese hospitals.

Note: My Japanese translator says this is not very commonly used in Japanese. I added this because a customer asked for it. There is not really a better Japanese phrase to express this idea - so this is it if you want it.

Beautiful Virtue Scroll

美德 written in Chinese or Korean Hanja can also mean "grace of character" or "noble virtue".

徳There is a slight variation in the modern Japanese Kanji form of the second character. If you want the modern Japanese version, please click on the special Kanji shown to the right instead of the button above. Note that the traditional Chinese form is still readable and understood by Japanese people ( it’s the ancient Japanese form anyway).

Mysterious Scroll

幽玄 is the Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja word meaning, dim, deep, mysterious, subtle grace, hidden beauty, mysterious profundity, elegant simplicity, or subtle and profound.

This can also be the Japanese personal name Yuugen or Yugen.

huáng tiān bù fù kǔ xīn rén

Heaven Rewards Hard Work Scroll

This inspirational Chinese proverb can be translated a few ways:

Heaven will not disappoint the person who tries.

If you try hard, you're bound to succeed eventually.

Heaven rewards diligent work.

Sincere/heartful effort reaps the grace of Heaven.

wǔ zǔ quán

Five Ancestors Fist Scroll

五祖拳 is a martial arts concept (or school) known as Five Ancestors' Fist.

The ancestors referred to by this title and whose attributes contribute to this style are as follows:
1. Grace of the White Crane.
2. Agility of the Monkey.
3. Precision and skill of Emperor Taizu (great mythical ancestor).
4. Power of Luohan (Buddhist arhat).
