Jill Phillips Album: Writing on the Wall Track: Grace and Peace
Grace and Peace Lyrics
About the song: The idea for this song came initially out of our love for the church we attend and the feeling of community we have experienced. There are so many different types of people, upbringings, races, etc., and yet it is a family. As we were writing, it began to be more about the church as a whole. That sense of unity is so necessary and often keeps me sane in these turbulent times. In our service the minister uses the greeting from the Bible, "Grace and peace to you through our Lord Jesus Christ". This was the message and the invitation we wanted to extend through the song.
Lyrics: All the weary, tired souls full of hunger Needing something that fills All the thirsty that heard about living water Need a way to the well It's a strange crowd But still somehow The lost have been found By the One in whose Name we come
Grace and peace to you through our Lord Jesus Times like these we need that kind of love To take these things coming in between us And wash us clean with the body and the blood
Early that night just before he was taken He broke of the bread So we could taste that He has died, He is risen He is coming again And it's much more Than we could ask for To be made pure By the One in whose Name we come
