Song Lyrics

I’ve always been the kind to do things on my own
I never needed any help to bring me up when I was low
I’ve chased after money and almost fallen for fame
But I was standing in the valley when he whispered my name
He said “follow and believe, come and find your rest in me”

It was his love that compelled him to leave his throne on high
It was compassion for the rebel and the final sacrifice
It was mercy that saw beyond my sin to my need
And it was grace that saved a wretch like me

We’ve stood on the mountain and we’ve drowned in the rain
But he’s been there right beside me every step along the way
One drop of his goodness is deeper than the sea
So I’ll swim in the ocean of my savior’s heart for me

It was his love that compelled him to leave his throne on high
It was compassion for the rebel and the final sacrifice
It was mercy that saw beyond my sin to my need
And it was grace that saved a wretch like me

Oh, the love that drew salvation’s plan
Oh, the grace that brought it down to man
Oh, the mighty gulf that God did span
For you and me

It was his love that compelled him to leave his throne on high
It was compassion for the rebel and the final sacrifice
It was mercy that saw beyond my sin to my need
And it was grace that saved a wretch like me
