• Matthew West - Grace Wins Lyrics

    From the album Live Forever

    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
