Grace Wins Lyrics

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

One story about "Grace Wins"

  • Christina Baker says:

    I heard this song for the first time today and was immediately touched by it’s powerful impact. I have been struggling with an issue for quite some time now, and have felt exactly as the lyrics say; like I have disappointed God, and that “grace could never reach that far.” I am about a month away from embarking upon a future career path that I have dedicated to fulfilling my God given purpose, and have found myself struggling with an intense spiritual battle. This battle began in my childhood but has taken an additional stronghold within the past six months. The Lord has been touching my mind and my heart for the past two days, and has been pouring out his love and faithfulness in various ways; including through this song! I was driving home when it came on the radio. Within seconds my heart was filled with God’s indescribable peace, and my eyes with tears from being touched by His overwhelming beauty and amazing grace! This morning I asked the Lord to speak to me…to touch my heart with a healing message…and He did just that. God is so good!! I can relate to this song so much. It feels like it was written just for me, but I thank God that it has and undoubtedly will continue to touch the lives of many! I am grateful that Matthew West has dedicated his life as a faithful messenger of God!
