thesamedeepurlasyou RE: Grace Will Conquer

In 2015, not every inclusive church is trying to channel the musical values of 1976 MOR, but we are, and it's delightful. Favorite track: Grace Will Conquer.

Track Name: Desperate
LYRICS:

One day she sees him walking
She’s bled for far too long, so surely this won’t hurt.
Everyone’s too busy talking.
Nobody notices her brush against his shirt.

When he turns, she hears their laughter.
And she fears to see the anger in his eyes.
But then she hears him call her daughter.
And the crowd around her hushes in surprise.

Some people think faith is believing
But I’m here to set them straight:
Shooting stars aren’t where faith’s living
We touch God when
we’re desperate.
Desperate

Thomas won’t believe their stories.
Says that he must touch the hole upon his side.
He's not one for wishful thinking,
Telling stories of one living who has died.

Jesus comes when least expected.
And he says to Thomas, “Come and know the truth.
All your doubts I have respected.
You will know me when you know these open wounds.”

Shooting stars do not grant wishes;
Fairies can’t be rescued with our clapping hands.
Christ is there when we are empty.
From the cross he shows he truly understands.

See the world and how they’re bleeding.
Healing only comes from One who knows their pain.
They will come to you for feeding.
They will come and these dry bones will live again.
Track Name: Nothing Can Stop God's Love
LYRICS:

The uniting love that won’t let us part;
when we’re far away we’re still one in heart.

The spirit empowers us and tells us to go;
and we’ll follow Jesus here below.

We were made by love
We were made in love
We were made for love
Nothing can stop God’s love

We’ll walk in his way, and know him inside
the power of one who was crucified.

We all are one, so let us agree
to share his truth in unity.

We were made by love
We were made in love
We were made for love
Nothing can stop God’s love

No height or depth, no sword of hate,
not even our death can separate.

Blest be the dear uniting love
that joins us with our God above.
Track Name: Connected
LYRICS:

Connected; We are connected.
We all share one heart;
Only hate tears us apart.
Abiding in our soul,
Only love makes us whole.
Love makes us all connected.

Many times, people aren’t aware.
This whole world is here for us to share.
If we open our eyes and our hearts
We will see that we’re not far apart.

Connected; We are connected.
We all share one heart;
Only hate tears us apart.
Abiding in our soul,
Only love makes us whole.
Love makes us all connected.

Thursday evening, Jesus told his friends,
“Abide in me, and I’ll be with you through the end.
Love each other as I have loved you
And they’ll see that the Good News is true.”

Connected; We are connected.
We all share one heart;
Only hate tears us apart.
Abiding in our soul,
Only love makes us whole.
Love makes us all connected.

It’s to easy to love those who love me.
And it’s a challenge to love our enemies.
The one who saves us sends sun upon us all
And the rain falls on the great and the small.
Track Name: Grace Will Conquer
LYRICS:

There’s sinning in the needle
and sinning in the glass
There’s sin that sells us everything
with sexy photographs

There’s sinning in the bedroom
And in the boardroom, too
There’s sinning from the pulpit
in what they’ll say to you

But grace is greater than all our sin
But grace will conquer all our sin.

We sin in what we do
And what we leave undone
We worship praise and holidays,
the dollar and the gun

And in the name of Jesus
we’ll tell you who we hate
We’ll use our faith and politics,
Lord, to discriminate

But grace is greater than all our sin.
But grace will conquer all our sin.

I hear there is a kingdom
It’s coming any day
Where wounded folks find healing
and their sins are washed away.

Lord, in the arc of history
bring justice to our land.
And give us all the courage
to love they way you can.

‘Cause grace is greater than all our sin
Grace will conquer all our sin.
Track Name: More Righteous
LYRICS:

Poor Tamar got pregnant after having some fun,
So Judah blew a gasket and took up his gun
Went down to her house and he banged on her door
Yelled out to all the neighbors she was playing the whore

They dragged her to the gallows there to put her to death
She said, “let me speak before I draw my last breath:
The man who got me pregnant gave me this signet ring.”
Judah took one look and felt his conscience sting.

She’s more righteous than me
She’s more righteous than me
I pray that one day I’ll have the grace to see
that the people who I judge may be the ones judging me
And I hope that when they do they do it mercifully
So that’s why I remember she’s more righteous than me

One day a man was walking down to Jericho
Through a neighborhood where nobody should go.
Some muggers beat him bloody and they left him to die,
And the preachers and the lawyers just passed him on by.

The hero of the story, well I thought he would be,
And ordinary citizen like you or like me.
But Jesus says the person who finally gave him aid
Was the person who I find it most easy to hate.

He’s more righteous than me (O, Lordy)
He’s more righteous than me
I pray that one day I’ll have the grace to see
that the people who I judge may be the ones judging me
And the measure I give will be the measure I get
So when you judge me, Jesus, please be lenient

Our privilege and our prejudice are deep in our bones
It’s easy to forget when we are gathering stones.
We treat our fellow humans like they’re part of a game
The mob will choose the ones who lose with public shame

Our righteous indignation we can’t satisfy
And in our anger any stranger we’ll crucify
But Jesus is the one who bravely takes our place
And this is what we sing when we look in his face

They’re more righteous than me
They’re more righteous than me
I pray that one day I’ll have the grace to see
that the people who I judge may be the ones judging me
And the measure I give will be the measure I get
So when you judge me, Jesus, please forgive and forget.
