grace - G5485 - From G5463; graciousness (as gratifying), of manner or act (abstract or concrete; literal, figurative or spiritual; especially the divine influence upon the heart, and its reflection in the life; including gratitude).
  • G5463 - A primary verb; to be full of “cheer”, that is, calmly happy or well off; impersonal especially as a salutation (on meeting or parting), be well.
you - G5213 - Irregular dative case of G5210; to (with or by) you.
  • G5210 - Irregular plural of G4771; you (as subject of verb).
    • The personal pronoun of the second person singular; thou.
(You'd think after looking up a word several times, I should be able to whip out the definition, repetition, repetition.)

and - G2532 -Apparently a primary particle, having a copulative and sometimes also a cumulative force; and, also, even, so, then, too, etc.; often used in connection (or composition) with other particles or small words.

peace - G1515 - Probably from a primary verb εἴρω eirō (to join); peace (literally or figuratively); by implication prosperity.

from - G575 - A primary particle; “off”, that is, away (from something near), in various senses (of place, time, or relation; literally or figuratively).

God - G2316 - Of uncertain affinity; a deity, especially (with G3588) the supreme Divinity; figuratively a magistrate; by Hebraism very.

our - G2257 - Genitive plural of G1473; of (or from) us.
  • G1473 - A primary pronoun of the first person, “I” (only expressed when emphatic).
Father - G3962 - Apparently a primary word; a “father” (literally or figuratively, near or more remote.

Lord - G2962 - From κῦρος kuros (supremacy); supreme in authority, that is, (as noun) controller; by implication Mr. (as a respectful title).

Jesus - G2424 - Of Hebrew origin [H3091]; Jesus (that is, Jehoshua), the name of our Lord and two (three) other Israelites.

Christ.- G5547 - From G5548; anointed, that is, the Messiah, an epithet of Jesus.
  • G5548 - Probably akin to G5530 through the idea of contact; to smear or rub with oil, that is, (by implication) to consecrate to an office or religious service.
    • G5530 - Middle voice of a primary verb (perhaps rather from G5495, to handle); to furnish what is needed; (give an oracle, “graze” [touch slightly], light upon, etc.), that is, (by implication) to employ or (by extension) to act towards one in a given manner.
Expanded Definition:  grace - charis (G5485) - Grace, particularly that which causes joy, pleasure, gratification, favor, acceptance, for a kindness granted or desired, a benefit, thanks, gratitude.  A favor done without expectation of return; the absolutely free expression of the loving kindness of God to men finding its ONLY MOTIVE in the bounty and benevolence of the Giver; the unearned and unmerited favor.  Charis stands in direct antithesis to erga (2041), works, the two being mutually exclusive.  God's grace affects men's sinfulness and not only forgives the repentant sinner, but brings joy and thankfulness to him. It changes the individual to a new creature without destroying his individuality.

Antonym - judgment, condemnation, adverse sentence, punishment.
