Defined By Grace
Defined by grace and grace alone
the only means by which Iíve flown,
above the din and doubt within,
my only victory over sin.
This grace a gift so undeserved
for all my life my self Iíve served.
Yet God so loved, He sent His Son
to die for me, the sinful one.
So now I fly on wings He gives,
this risen Lord now through me lives.
To show the world their humble King
Who died for us to give us wings.
For on these mighty wings of grace
all that believe, will see Godís face,
and thus find strength to emulate
the One Who died to change our fate.
