It’s not because I’ve always deserved it, it’s only because of his grace and mercy that has brought me to where I am today. Serving God and singing for the Lord is not a hobby, it’s who I am. It’s like drinking water and breathing in air….I need him in order to live.” Sherl Burke’s new release “Faithful God” is the “MUST HAVE” cd of the year.

Lyrics

Your Grace

Written By: Sherl Burke

VERSE 1:
Remember when I
Thought that I wouldn’t make it
Didn’t know if my heart could take it
You held me with grace and said I can
Oh how, how did I get to this place
It’s only because of your grace
That brought me this far in my life

CHORUS:
Your grace, your grace that is there to keep me
The grace of my loving father
Descending on me from heaven
Your grace, the grace of a brand new mercy
The grace that dwells inside me
Without it where would I be
If not for your grace.

Verse 2:
There were times when
Heavy burdens were upon me
Not my strength but yours sustained my
You held me with grace and said I’m here
I know, I know you didn’t have to save me
What a precious gift you gave me
The priceless gift of saving grace

(Repeat Chorus)

BRIDGE:
Your grace, your grace is so sufficient
When we’re weak your strength is perfect
Enabling me to stand
Your grace, your grace of unmerited favor
How your blessings overtake us
We are who we are in Christ because
It’s because of your grace

Repeat Chorus:

VAMP:
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
For by grace are we saved
By his redeeming grace
