Grace... We say it at meals
Grace... Some name their kids that
Grace... A state of being when we are nice
Grace... So much more than we can imagine.
Human... Making mistakes
Human... Saying wrong things
Human... Being downright rude sometimes
Human... Who can help?
Grace + Human, What a state that is!
Grace + Human, An avalanche of goodness
Grace + Human, I really don’t get it
Grace + Human, Divinely beyond my understanding
Terribly Human is what I am
Terribly Human with no hope of change
Terribly Human aware of the need
Terribly Human, I can’t do this alone.
We’ve collided with the Holy
Assaulted by the Grace
Contained in the Fire
That expunges all my dirt
Take my life and let it be
Consecrated, Lord, to Thee.
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in endless praise.
