03. Don't Try So Hard [feat. James Taylor]

How Mercy Looks From Here
by Amy Grant



 

Another Monday comes
And I just want to breathe
ĎCause itís a long, long week
for someone wired to please
I keep taking my aim, pushing it higher
Want to shine bright, even brighter now
Wish I could tell myself

DONíT TRY SO HARD
GOD GIVES YOU GRACE AND YOU CANíT EARN IT
DONíT THINK THAT YOUíRE NOT WORTH IT
BECAUSE YOU ARE
HE GAVE YOU HIS LOVE AND HEíS NOT LEAVING
GAVE YOU HIS SON SO YOUíD BELIEVE IT
YOUíRE LOVELY EVEN WITH YOUR SCARS
DONíT TRY SO HARD
Do you remember how the summers felt
when we were kids
Oh, we didnít think much about it
we just lived
Taking our time, beautiful leisure
When did we start trying to measure up
When all of this time,
Love has been trying to tell us
DONíT TRY SO HARD
GOD GIVES YOU GRACE, YOU CANíT EARN IT
STOP THINKING YOUíRE NOT WORTH IT
BECAUSE YOU ARE
HE GAVE YOU HIS LOVE AND HEíS NOT LEAVING
GAVE YOU HIS SON SO YOUíD BELIEVE IT
YOUíRE LOVELY EVEN WITH YOUR SCARS
LOVELY THE WAY YOU ARE
SO OPEN UP YOUR LOVELY HEART
AND DONíT TRY SO HARD

Written by Ben Glover and Amy Grant
