Only Grace


Behind The Song

This song was written one Ash Wednesday after seeing people, so different from each other, each hurting, yet hopeful too, alone and lonely, yet somehow also finding the courage to come together, on a cold, cold night, to receive the sooty sign of the cross on their foreheads. "It is grace, only grace, that brings us here, hold us all together here." 

Also inspired by these words from Frederick Buechner, "Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don't be afraid. I am with you. Nothing can ever separate us. It's for you I created the universe. I love you."

The Lyrics

Things are broken here. 
Things are shared 
Things are carried here 
Hearts bow in prayer 

It is grace, only grace 
That brings us here, holds us together here. 

It is grace, only grace 
That brings us here, holds us all together here. 
All together here. 

Things are dying here 
Things are torn 
Things are growing here 
And burdens borne. 


Amazing grace, hear the sound. 
Here is where hope is found.
