Verse 1: Time measured out my days – life carried me along— In my heart I yearned to follow God, But knew I’d never be so strong. I looked around the world and surely Heaven cannot be gained. People working to attain, But human effort is all in vain.
Chorus: Were it not for grace I can tell you where I’d be: Wandering down some lonely road to nowhere with my salvation up to me. I know how that would go – the battles I would face— Forever running, but losing the race... Were it not for grace.
Verse 2: So here is all my praise – expressed with all my heart! Offered to the Lord Who took my place And ran the race I could not start. And though He knew in full just how much His love would cost He still walked that final mile to Calvary’s cross So I would not be lost.
Chorus: Were it not for grace I can tell you where I’d be: Wandering down some lonely road to nowhere with my salvation up to me. I know how that would go – the battles I would face— Forever running, but losing the race... Were it not for grace— Forever running, but losing the race... Were it not for grace.
Something Beautiful, something good - all my confusion, He understood.
All I had to offer Him was misery and strife -
But He made Something Beautiful out of my life. ♥ ~~“But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.” (Romans 5:20b KJV) ♥
