Were It Not For Grace
.
By David Hamilton, Phil McHugh
 
Time measured out my days, life carried me along.
In my soul I yearned to follow God
But knew I’d never be so strong.
I looked hard at this world to learn
How heaven could be gained;
Just to end where I began,
Where human effort is all in vain.
 
Were it not for grace,
I can tell you where I’d be--
Wandering down some pointless road to nowhere
With my salvation up to me.
I know how that would go
The battles I would face, forever running but losing the race--
Were it not for grace.
 
So here is all my praise,
Expressed with all my heart,
Offered to the Friend who took my place
And ran a course I could not start.
And when He saw in full just
How much His love would cost,
He still went the final mile between me and Heaven
So I would not be lost.
 
Were it not for grace, I can tell you where I’d be,
Wandering down some pointless road to nowhere,
With my salvation up to me.
And I know how that would go,
The battles I would face, forever running but losing the race--
Were it not for grace.
Forever running but losing the race--
Were it not for grace.
