Saving Grace

If You find it in Your heart, can I be forgiven?

Guess I owe You some kind of apology.

I've escaped death so many times, I know I'm only living

By the saving grace that's over me.

.

By this time I'd-a thought I would be sleeping

In a pine box for all eternity.

My faith keeps me alive, but I still be weeping

For the saving grace that's over me.

.

Well, the death of life, then come the resurrection,

Wherever I am welcome is where I'll be.

I put all my confidence in Him, my sole protection

Is the saving grace that's over me.

.

Well, the devil's shining light, it can be most blinding,

But to search for love, that ain't no more than vanity.

As I look around this world all that I'm finding

Is the saving grace that's over me.

.

The wicked know no peace and you just can't fake it,

There's only one road and it leads to Calvary.

It gets discouraging at times, but I know I'll make it

By the saving grace that's over me.
