This Too, is Grace

The answer you refused to see
To things that you had meant to be
The revision of desired history
This too, is grace

In shattered heart and loneliness
In sickness too deep to express
In hangovers and emptiness
This too, is grace

In hurting, you are still alive
To cry to Him you still believe
You with nothing, your cares can give
This too, is grace

And when your well-laid plans you would
He breaks and works it all for good
In Him-ness where once on sand you stood
This too, is grace

Just try to fix your eyes in grief
Find in sweet scripture some relief
Cry "I believe, Lord, help my unbelief"
This too, is grace


  1. Great line repetition at the end of the stanzas. Adds a bit of classical to the modern.

  2. Thank you, Ben. That's what I was going for.
