Sometimes I let my soul become like a desert land,
building up on every side castles made with sand.
I try to hide behind these walls of bitterness and shame,
selfishness and hurt and pride grow like a hungry flame.
I use to think that all this pain was inconsolable,
and then I found out that your grace was uncontrollable.

Its like a tidal wave, coming down around me,
I won't be afraid, for here your grace has found me.
It takes my breath away, and I can't fight the constant pull,
I don't need an escape, as your mercy floods my thirsty soul.
Crashing, beating, shattering the walls around my heart,
they can't withstand, heart now exposed, my facade torn apart,
by your grace.

Its unexpected, powerful, beautiful, and free,
this overwhelming mercy is now enough for me.
Sometimes I can't believe you found me living with this dirt,
looking past my stains and scars to see a deeper worth.
You picked me up and brushed me off and took me by the hand,
loving me with such compassion, i can barely stand.

Its like a tidal wave, coming down around me,
I won't be afraid, for here your grace has found me.
It takes my breath away, and I can't fight the constant pull,
I don't need an escape, as your mercy floods my thirsty soul.
Crashing, beating, shattering the walls around my heart,
they can't withstand, heart now exposed, my facade torn apart,
by your grace.
