lyrics

My fool heart is breaking the rules again
taking no count of the cost or the consequence
So darkness fills this room where I lay
appeasing my nagging guilt with my suffering

But o sweet Grace tangles me in her web,
surrounds my soul, let’s me know that she’s in control.
Then o sweet Grace wrestles the demons within,
pins them down, sets me free again.

Oh, I’ve had enough of these careless mistakes.
There’re just no more excuses. I’m the only one to blame.
So darkness is chased from my room by the light
of the morning sun. I’ve nothing left. I’m overcome!

By o sweet Grace, defender of guilty men,
anchor throughout life’s storms, the washer away of my sins
But o sweet Grace, how can I be so sure
I’m forgiven and I’m guilty no more?

I’m caught in the crossfire of angels and demons
As I pass through, this parking lot echoes with rumors
It’s a change in perspective ’tween the saved and the damned
Singing, “Alleluia!”

I’m caught in the crossfire of angels and demons
As I pass through, this parking lot echoes with rumors
It’s a change in perspective ’tween the saved and the damned
Singing, “Alleluia!”

O sweet Grace,
take me all at once,
into Your arms,
into Your arms.

I’m caught in the crossfire of angels and demons
As I pass through, this parking lot echoes with rumors
It’s a change in perspective ’tween the saved and the damned
Singing, “Alleluia!”
