Alexander (Song II)

Alexander (Song II)

Verse 1
I hold the Bible, face to the sun
Thanking God that I've finally won
I learned the hard way there's no fulfillment to replace
The God-shaped empty space
I thought for sure I'd fallen from Grace
But now I'm guiltless; I can lift up my face

Chorus
Just when I thought I'd gone too far
Just when I thought my life was too marred
I learned the definition of redemption
How it can reach to all the hopeless
I thought I'd fallen from Grace for sure
That I'd done too much to be made pure
And though the way is ridden with pain
My heart longer holds sin's stain

Verse 2
It took courage to reach this point
The road is excruciating, but I'd never go back
To the hopeless state I was in before
No matter how I've sinned, Grace matters more
So many times I nearly fell
But Forgiveness abounds like a living well
I'd drowned myself in sin til I was nearly dead in lies
But now I have the strength to look others in the eyes

Chorus
Just when I thought I'd gone too far
Just when I thought my life was too marred
I learned the definition of redemption
How it can reach to all the hopeless
I thought I'd fallen from Grace for sure
That I'd done too much to be made pure
And though the way is ridden with pain
My heart longer holds sin's stain

Bridge
I know I'll never understand why
God could ever look upon me with pride
His Love and Mercy never end 
And I'm invited to come and know Him

Chorus
Just when I thought I'd gone too far
Just when I thought my life was too marred
I learned the definition of redemption
How it can reach to all the hopeless
I thought I'd fallen from Grace for sure
That I'd done too much to be made pure
And though the way is ridden with pain
My heart longer holds sin's stain  

Ending
My life is in God's hands
I rest assured He's in control of it
I face sin now; I can refuse
Because God's Love is strong enough to stop it 

The End
