Living by the Grace of God

1
Lord, keep me living, through deep sorrows and steep joys,
My human life is filled with days of darkness, days of songs.
What’s the purpose? What’s the reason for all this?
Lord, it’s only by Your grace, by the grace of God I’ll live.
  Keep me living by the grace of God,
Make this a reality, Christ living in me.
Keep me living by the grace of God,
For the reality, of the Body of Christ.
2
Lord, Your grace, is flowing from the throne,
Not material gifts, nor blessings, but the processed Triune God.
God the Father’s boundless riches, God the Son an endless spring,
God the Spirit’s ceaseless flowing thus the Triune God to bring.
  Keep me living by the grace of God,
Make this a reality, Christ living in me.
Keep me living by the grace of God,
For the reality, of the Body of Christ.
3
Lord, Your Body, must become reality,
Through every member functioning to build up Your Body.
So defeat us, and subdue us, open vessels, Lord we pray,
As stewards of the grace of God, Lord build us up today.
  Keep us living by the grace of God,
Make this a reality, Christ living in us.
Keep us living by the grace of God,
For the reality, of the Body of Christ.

Wow, this one hit so hard! Submitting with joy seems so simple, yet incredibly difficult to do!

It's only by Your grace, Lord, no one else can satisfy.

Lord, we love You so much.

Keep us living by Your grace every single moment. We cannot live by ourselves except through You - only You are able!

Make us the open vessels You desire. We open wide to Your ceaselessly flowing life supply!!

2 Corinthians 12:9 And He has said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness. Most gladly therefore I will rather boast in my weaknesses that the power of Christ might tabernacle over me.
