Thank You For Your Grace

I started this song a couple of weeks earlier, trying something new. It's time for people to wake up and see the grace of God. Every day people are scared, crying, or tired of life, and they have to see there is no need to be scared, don't have to cry, and you don't have to be tired of life. Here is a song for people to lift up and see Jesus. There was a time when I was discouraged, and my eyes opened. I`ll always be grateful for the love He gives to me. God worked in me again when I made this music, and God give me friends to write the lyrics. Thank you Rick and Elton for the beautiful words. God bless. - Peter, 25 June 2008.


(Verse 1)
You stepped into my life and made me new.
A broken man, discarded and hopeless,
The things you've done, no one else could do,
Restoring what was worn, torn and worthless.

(Verse 2)
So hear my cry, O Lord, as I express
My grateful heart, the praise that I offer
For Your great love, and Your faithfulness
I Thank You Lord, my God, my Savior.

And though I rise to the tops of the mountains
Or if I fall into the depths of the sea
There is no ending to Your love, it springs eternal
Thank You for Your grace, O Lord, which covers me.

(Verse 3)
You brought a living water to my soul
refreshing me, so cool and healing
A life that once was empty now is full
With goodness, hope and joy overflowing.

(Repeat Chorus 2 Times)
And though I rise to the tops of the mountains
Or if I fall into the depths of the sea
There is no ending to Your love, it springs eternal
Thank You for Your grace, O Lord, which covers me.

Yvette Franklin2008-09-26Hi everybody,

I live in Pakistan and have been visiting your site on and off to help me with my songs of praise for two choirs that I conduct. I play the guitar and your music has helped me tremendously. Is there a book or something that has all the guitar chords that I may use. I am not very good at taking out the chords. I love all your music and my son Reuben has been asked to sing "I lay it down" for different Parishes.

Thanks and best regards
Yvette Franklin
