Grace of God

girl-reaching-up

Your love and grace have set me free

You saw me broken, lost and flawed

You dried my tears, now I can see

How wondrous is the Grace of God

 

Now when you say to follow rules

I find it curious and odd

I do not mean to ridicule –

How wondrous is the Grace of God

 

When righteous living is your goal

And though the goal I can applaud

Through love the Spirit makes me whole

How wondrous is the Grace of God

 

Don’t set aside His gift of grace

By which the world would be so awed

Surrender rules to His embrace

How wondrous is the Grace of God

 

Your love and grace have me free;

How wondrous is the Grace of God

 

 

“When we make people try to follow our rules and regulations for righteous living we have a problem; we set aside the grace of God.” Daily Enduring Truth
