By the Grace

© 1996 James D. Thompson

There was a time when I
Made up my mind to be
Troubled and worried and bored
I couldn't see that I'd
Never be free till I
Put my faith in the lord.

I survived
I'm alive
by the grace of God
(now I've) learned to give
(and I've) come to live
by the grace of God.

I lived a life based on
greed, pride, and strife and I
prayed for the end of my days
I woke up one morning and
the light hit my eyes and He
showed me the errors of my ways.

(Now I) walk with Him
(And I) talk to Him
By the grace of God
(now I've) learned to give
(and I've) come to live
by the grace of God.

instrumental through verse
Chorus:
By the Grace . . .

Now I know in my heart this is
Only the start of a
Life that is honest and true
Let your heart be still, give your
life to His will and the
Grace of God will shine on you

By the grace . . .
