Grace wins every time!

In my weakest moment I see you
Shaking your head in disgrace 
I can read the disappointment 
Written all over your face

Here come those whispers in my ear 
Saying, “who do you think you are?” 
Looks like you're on your own from here 
‘Cause grace could never reach that far 

But in the shadow of that shame
Beat down by all the blame
I hear You call my name saying it's not over 
And my heart starts to beat so loud now 
Drowning out the doubt
I'm down, but I'm not out 

There's a war between guilt and grace 
And they're fighting for a sacred space 
But I'm living proof 
Grace wins every time
No more lying down in death's defeat 
Now I'm rising up in victory 
Singing, hallelujah
Grace wins every time

Words can't describe the way it feels 
When mercy floods a thirsty soul 
The broke inside begins to heal 
And grace returns what guilty stole

And in the shadow of that shame
Beat down by all the blame
I hear You call my name saying it's not over 
And my heart starts to beat so loud now 
Drowning out the doubt
I'm down, but I'm not out 

There's a war between guilt and grace 
And they're fighting for a sacred space 
But I'm living proof 
Grace wins every time
No more lying down in death's defeat
Now I'm rising up in victory 
Singing, hallelujah

Grace wins every time

For the prodigal son
Grace wins
For the woman at the well 
Grace wins
For the blind man and the beggar 
Grace wins
For always and forever 
Grace wins 
For the lost out on the streets 
Grace wins
For the worst part of you and me 
Grace wins
For the thief on the cross 
Grace wins
For a world that is lost 


There's a war between guilt and grace 
And they're fighting for a sacred space 
But I'm living proof 
Grace wins every time
No more lying down in death's defeat 
Now I'm rising up in victory 
Singing, hallelujah
Grace wins every time, every time 
Yeah, I'm living proof 
Grace wins every time
