What Grace Is Mine

Yesterday, our family returned from a 2-week, 4,200-mile road trip to Arizona. We had a wonderful time of being awed by the creative works of our awesome God (the red mountains of Sedona and the Grand Canyon, to name just two), and taking part in Grace Covenant Church‘s annual family camp. One of the ways we occupied so many hours on the road with four children under eleven was by listening to audio books like Charlotte’s Web, Shiloh, and Hugo Cabret (3x!) and listening to music CDs like the Muppets, Winnie the Pooh, Casting Crowns, and the Gettys. The disc we listened to the most; however, is Keith and Kristyn Getty’s “Awaken the Dawn.” I love every song on this disc, but my personal favorite is the closing track, “What Grace Is Mine.” It is my testimony and prayer.

What grace is mine that He who dwells in endless light
Called through the night to find my distant soul
And from his scars poured mercy that would plead for me
That I might live and in his name be known

So I will go wherever He is calling me
I lose my life to find my life in Him
I give my all to gain the hope that never dies
I bow my heart, take up my cross and follow Him

What grace is mine to know His breath alive in me
Beneath his wings my wakened soul may soar
All fear can flee for death’s dark night is overcome
My Saviour lives and reigns forevermore

So I will go wherever He is calling me
I lose my life to find my life in Him
I give my all to gain the hope that never dies
I bow my heart, take up my cross and follow Him
