New Song - Amazed by Grace

Yesterday a few of us from church met up for our tri-yearly song writing session. A great time with loads of ideas and a few new songs! Noticing a gap in the market for songs that talk about Church Fellowship and so we wrote one based on Hebrews 10 as a result. Lyrically we're there, just working on the verse melody now, so watch this space!

This is the song I've been working on most recently - it's called Amazed by Grace. We recorded it a couple of months back so you can have a listen (if the thing'll let me upload it!). It focuses on the grace of God in provided his Son Jesus who completely takes away all of my sin and leaves me utterly amazed!


Lyrics below...


My fears and my failings
My doubts and my sin
My pride and self-pity
All hidden within
And yet, Lord, you've called me
To glorious grace
To be in your presence
To look on your face

And I'm amazed by your Gospel
Amazed at your grace
And I'm amazed by your mercy
And your glorious face
And I'm amazed by your beauty
Amazed at your call
And I'm amazed that you should look at me... at all
Amazed by grace


In Jesus I'm rescued
Brought out from the depths
His blood spent on my part
His body lay dead
Yet death could not keep him
He arose from the grave
To live as Redeemer
His people to save

And I'm amazed by your Gospel
Amazed by your grace
And I'm amazed by your mercy
And your glorious face
And I'm amazed by your beauty
Amazed at your call
And I'm amazed that you should look at me... at all
Amazed by grace


How can we learn
To marvel every day
That our Lord Jesus - Saviour
Has opened up the way


And I'm amazed by your Gospel
Amazed by your grace
And I'm amazed by your mercy
And your glorious face
And I'm amazed by your beauty
Amazed at your call
And I'm amazed that you should look at me... at all
Amazed by grace


Signing off for today,
