The Grace Of God - Poem by Nathan Good

She makes herself look strong outside
When she’s falling apart within
She picks herself up and carries on
After falling down again
Can’t admit it’s all uphill
Trying to carry it alone
Life holds no pleasures now
All she can do is moan

She’s gonna need the grace of God
To carry her through
The grace of God
To hold her too
She can try, she can stumble
God only wants the humble
But His love can carry her through
By the grace of God

He had it all made for him
But he lost it to his pride
He could have had the world my friend
But now he wishes he’d died
He struggles along uphill
Trying to carry it all alone
Life holds no pleasures now
All he can do is groan

He’s gonna need the grace of God
To carry him through
The grace of God
To hold him too
He can try, he can stumble
God only wants the humble
But His love can carry him through
By the grace of God

We all go through this from time to time
We’d rather struggle along
Feeding our pride
Than admit that we’re wrong
Accept why Jesus died

We're gonna need the grace of God
To carry us through
The grace of God
To hold us too
We can try, we can stumble
God only wants the humble
But His love can carry us through
By the grace of God
