THE OTHER SIDE OF GRACE

The other side of Grace

This is where the living-dead reside

Where I claimed I couldn’t see, behind closed eyes

The other side of Grace

This is where I glorified, my sinful ways

I remember blaming God for the struggles of my days

The other side of Grace When I thought I was at my best

Violence, lies, drugs, and lusting of the flesh

The other side of Grace

I felt as if God would intercede if He, really cared

Momma’s smoking, stomach growling and daddy still not there

On the other side of Grace

This is where most people lose all hope

That confusion, no identities tell me how you’d cope

On the other side of Grace

I know this to be true, even if you can’t see

That while we labored in the dark, God was standing close to you and me

On the other side of Grace

I’ve lost friends and enemies; I can’t help but to wonder why

Gods’ grace is all around I have just realized

I didn’t want to stay on the other side of Grace

So much pain and I couldn’t wipe the tears from my son’s face

On the other side of Grace
