It's From The Lord

By Peter Gringhuis, Elton Smith and Larry Holder

CCLI Number: 5395925

Peter sent this music. It sounded so 'live', it seemed appropriate to add a virtual concert crowd. Larry and I wrote the lyrics based on Ephesians 2:8-9. Many thanks to Nicole de Jong and Margriet Brasz for singing backup vocals, and to Filco Kruit for playing the extremely cool electric guitar parts. - Elton, 10 January 2009

It is not by things that I have done
It is not by trials that I have overcome
It is not by my own sweat and tears
Or service I've performed throughout the years

It is not by doing all I can
It is not by following a careful plan
It is not by merit or reward
It is not of me, it's from the Lord!

It's by the mercy and the grace that He has shown
It's by the Words of Life that lead us to His throne
It's by His Spirit that our souls are born anew
We cannot boast -- it is God's gift to me and you!

It is not by things that I have done
It is not by trials that I have overcome
It is not by my own sweat and tears
Or service I've performed throughout the years

It's by the mercy and the grace that He has shown
It's by the Words of Life that lead us to His throne
It's by His Spirit that our souls are born anew
We cannot boast -- it is God's gift to me and you!

(guitar solo)

It is not by things that I have done
It is not by trials that I have overcome
It is not by my own sweat and tears
Or service I've performed throughout the years

It is not by doing all I can
It is not by following a careful plan
It is not by merit or reward
It is not of me, it's from the Lord!

Dear Peter, Larry and Elton, I love you guys. Please let the Words themselves speak of God than the metals.

Song is really good, but please avoid any extra sound effects. We need to praise God more than a human talent. I find this composition is no different from any worldly songs.

Yes we may work hard,
And yes, we seek honour and recognition,
But honour and recognition for whom?
Raise up your good deeds, and your noble acts,
For they are to be done in God's precious name,
In humble thanksgiving, for the gift of eternal life - through Jesus Christ we are home at last!

It's amazing to be reminded that God's love towards us is by His divine mercy. We do not merit it. Our survival each day is by God's mercy and grace.
Thank you for such a song at the beginning of the year.
