A Moment Of Grace

Print-Friendly Lyrics

She was down on her knees
She would never get free
Her accusers had stones in their hands
And they turned to Jesus just to see what He’d say
But the Lord just wrote in the sand

They all walked away
But they heard Him say,
“Let the sin-free cast the first stone”
And with tears on her face
All her sins were erased
She stood in a moment of grace

Now the thief on the cross
Knew that his life was lost
He must pay for the crimes of his past
He had done nothing right
And he would sure lose this fight
His time was running out fast

In desperation he cried
To the Lord at his side
“Remember me when you reach Heaven’s gate”
And Jesus forgave
And all his sin was erased
And he died in a moment of grace

A moment of grace
Undeserved favor
Unspeakable joy
My soul found an anchor
Unmerited love and
Mercy that swept my soul away
He called my name
And everything changed in a moment of grace

See, I’ve been counted out
By the self-righteous crowd
Who would say that I’m not worthy to live
They say, “You’ve drifted too far, you’re so stuck in sin’s mire,
You need a miracle that only God can give”

Then Jesus passed by
And with this reply,
He said, “I choose you – just live for me today”
And Jesus forgave
And all my sin was erased
And I stood in my moment of grace

A moment of grace
Undeserved favor
Unspeakable joy
My soul found an anchor
It was unmerited love and
And mercy that swept my soul away
He called my name
And everything changed in a moment of grace

It was unmerited love
And His mercy that swept my soul away
He called my name
And everything changed in a moment of grace
