Grace Abounds

I was bound and oppressed, tormented and tested 
 By this world that I’m living in
 I saw no way out
 My life filled with doubt
 How could I ever be free again?
 I saw obstacles everywhere I turned
 From the past mistakes where I’d been burned
 Then a voice whispered in my ear
 My child, be still I am here

 My grace will abound in your life
 My mercy will pull you aside
 Out of this bondage
 Out of your past
 Into a blessing that will surely last
 Do not despair just lift your eyes to the skies
 My grace will abound in your life

 When I heard Him speak these words to me
 Tears filled my eyes as I realized
 This was a promise
 This freedom was coming
 A freedom to transform my life
 I saw blessings everywhere I turned
 All the years of obedience had earned
 Then I lifted my voice to the skies
 Dear Lord, your grave has arrived

 Your grace will abound in my life
 Your mercy has pulled me aside
 Out of my bondage
 Out of my past
 Into a blessing that will surely last
 I will give praise to Jesus above
 Who has rescued me by His love

 His grace will bring freedom. 
 His grace will bring faith
 His grace will bring healing
 His grace will bring erase
 All the chains that have held me down
 Will fall to the ground
 As His grace abounds

 His grace will abound in my life
 His mercy will pull me aside
 Out of this bondage
 Out of your past
 Into a blessing that will surely last
 I will not despair.  I will lift up my eyes to the skies
 His grace will abound in my life
 I will lift up my eyes to the skies
 His grace will abound in my life
