Grace Wins

Album: Live Forever (2015)
  • In my weakest moment I see you
    Shaking your head in disgrace
    I can read the disappointment
    Written all over your face

    Here comes those whispers in my ear
    Saying who do you think you are
    Looks like you're on your own from here
    'Cause grace could never reach that far

    But, in the shadow of that shame
    Beat down by all the blame
    I hear you call my name sayin' it's not over
    And my heart starts to beat
    So loud now, drowning out the doubt
    I'm down but I'm not out

    There's a war between guilt and grace
    And they're fighting for a sacred space
    But I'm living proof
    Grace wins every time

    No more lying down in death's defeat
    Now I'm rising up in victory
    Singing hallelujah
    Grace wins every time

    Words can't describe the way it feels
    When mercy floods a thirsty soul
    A broken side begins to heal
    And grace returns what guilt has stole

    And, in the shadow of that shame
    Beat down by all the blame
    I hear you call my name sayin' it's not over
    And my heart starts to beat
    So loud now, drowning out the doubt
    I'm down but I'm not out

    There's a war between guilt and grace
    And they're fighting for a sacred space
    But I'm living proof
    Grace wins every time

    No more lying down in death's defeat
    Now I'm rising up in victory
    Singing hallelujah
    Grace wins every time

    For the prodigal son, grace wins
    For the woman at the well, grace wins
    For the blind man and the beggar, grace wins
    For always and forever, grace wins
    For the lost out on the street, grace wins
    For the worst part of you and me, grace wins
    For the thief on the cross, grace wins
    For a world that it lost

    There's a war between guilt and grace
    And they're fighting for a sacred space
    But I'm living proof
    Grace wins every time

    No more lying down in death's defeat
    Now I'm rising up in victory
    Singing hallelujah
    Grace wins every time

    Every time
    I'm living proof grace wins every time Writer/s: MATTHEW WEST
