“Grace Wins Every Time”

Matthew%20West_Grace%20WinsThis week, someone suggested we share our best 5 songs of 2015 on a whatsapp group page and someone mentioned Matthew West’s “Grace Wins”.

Almost everyone I know agrees that it is a good song. I will not talk about the elements of a good song but I do know that “Grace Wins” is an honest song and the fact that its lyrics is in resonance with the biblical concept of grace is a win in itself.

It talked of what others thought of us in our fallen state and what we think of ourselves and that “Grace Wins” over those speeches and thoughts.

Read the lyrics and go ahead to give a listen to this good song while I write another testimony on another Matthew West’s songs:

In my weakest moment I see you
Shaking your head in disgrace
I can read the disappointment
Written all over your face
Here comes those whispers in my ear
Saying who do you think you are
Looks like you’re on your own from here
Cause grace could never reach that far

But, in the shadow of that shame
Beat down by all the blame
I hear you call my name sayin it’s not over
And my heart starts to beat
So loud now, drowning out the doubt
I’m down but I’m not out

There’s a war between guilt and grace
And they’re fighting for a sacred space
But I’m living proof
Grace wins every time
No more lying down in death’s defeat
Now I’m rising up in victory
Singing hallelujah
Grace wins every time

Words can’t describe the way it feels
When mercy floods a thirsty soul
A broken side begins to heal
And grace returns what guilt has stole
And, in the shadow of that shame
Beat down by all the blame
I hear you call my name sayin it’s not over
And my heart starts to beat
So loud now, drowning out the doubt
I’m down but I’m not out

There’s a war between guilt and grace
And they’re fighting for a sacred space
But I’m living proof
Grace wins every time
No more lying down in death’s defeat
Now I’m rising up in victory
Singing hallelujah
Grace wins every time

For the prodigal son, grace wins
For the woman at the well, grace wins
For the blind man and the beggar, grace wins
For always and forever, grace wins
For the lost out on the street, grace wins
For the worst part of you and me, grace wins
For the thief on the cross, grace wins
For a world that is lost

There’s a war between guilt and grace
And they’re fighting for a sacred space
But I’m living proof
Grace wins every time
Yeah!

No more lying down in death’s defeat
Now I’m rising up in victory
Singing hallelujah
Grace wins every time
Every time
Yeah, I’m living proof grace wins every time.
