New grace every morning

We are still alive because the LORD'S faithful love never ends.

Every morning he shows it in new ways! You are so very true and loyal!
Lamentations 3:22-23 (ERV)

Do you ever think you’re starting to know God, but then he surprises you yet again? And again? And again?

He’s doing that with me a lot this year.

This is one of my new favorite songs about God and his grace.
His grace is new every morning, yes?

LYRICS

Day after day I try to explain You
Like I can contain You in so many words
But You are the ocean and I'm on the shoreline
Thinking I know You like You could be learned

It's so amazing that You'd ever save me

CHORUS
I thought I knew Your face
I thought I’d tasted grace
But I have never felt anything close to this
Just when I'd seen it all
New mercy breaks the dawn
And with my eyes open wide
It feels like the first time, first time
It feels like the first time, first time

After all of my searching, all of my reaching
I'm left with nothing, nothing of worth
You treasure the broken over and over
Give me a hope that could never be earned

It's still amazing that You'd ever save me

CHORUS

Your beauty no eye has seen
Your majesty overwhelming
Your love for me is healing oh God

I thought I knew Your face
I thought I’d tasted grace
But it was nothing like this
Just when I’d seen it all
New mercy breaks the dawn
And with my eyes open wide
I feel alive for the first time, first time
Just like the first time, first time
I can see for the first time, first time
It’s just like the first time
