08. Grace Amazing

Nightlights
by Jimmy Needham



 

You found my heart in a tomb / Wrapped up all lifeless and bruised / I was the living dead, couldnít even lift my head / To see you enter the room / Thatís how it is with us all / We werenít just damaged we fell dead at the fall / Only the innocent can breathe the air again / Underground, over my head / Iím almost sure Iím dead, unless // You breathe life into me / I wonít ever feel a dead heart beating / But You opened these blind eyes to see / Thatís what makes Your grace amazing // No one can come to the Son / Unless the Father compels him to come / Our hearts are bottomless / If we're autonomous / Why do we choose corruption? /// Who's equipped for replacing this heart of stone? / Christ, the name that I'm calling on, calling on / He's the hope for the hopeless, ya'll / We were saved when He chose and called / Where is life if it's not in the King? / You're the God giving life to all things / There's One, the Son //// (featuring Tripp Lee) / You might've heard I was dead in the grave / With some shackles on my wrists, I was very enslaved / To the lusts and the passions and various ways / That are found in the hearts of the dead and depraved / My sight wasn't just blurry and vague / I was blind as a bat, couldn't thoroughly gaze / At the glory of Christ, or His story of life / The Father said to come to Him but I hurried away / I was stuck couldn't choose to be found / Tell me, when the last time you seen a dead man moving around? / Couldn't buy my freedom, I was truthfully bound / Couldn't give myself sight I was shooting Him down / Only the Gospel of Christ has the great might / Only the words of God can create life / Give joy, remove shackles, and replace sight / I was raised by His grace and I praise Christ, yeah //// You breathe Your life into me / Now I finally feel a dead heart beating / You opened these blind eyes to see / Thatís what makes Your grace amazing

Behind the Song:
"This is what happens when you get a folksy worship leader (Shane Barnard), a hip-hop artist (Trip Lee) and myself together to work on a song. I wanted to write a song about the glory of God, and God looks most glorious when we see Him in His role as rescuer. He chooses, He calls, He savesÖ all because of His grace." - Jimmy Needham
