Song of Grace


But by the grace of God go I
See how the rain falls from the sky
See how the spring time spawns new birth
How summer wheat leaps from the earth
Humbly, I lift my voice and cry
But by the grace of God go I

But by the grace of God go I
See how the fledgling learns to fly
See how the baby learns to walk
How corn hangs heavy on the stalk
And all that I can do is cry
But by the grace of God go I

But by the grace of God go I
We are born, we live; we die
The only boast within life’s hour
Is what is rendered by His power
As we join nature’s hymn to cry
But by the grace of God go I
