Life Reflections – 07.09.10

In college, I was introduced to the music of contemporary Christian music pioneer Keith Green (1953-1982).  He died in a plane crash 28 years ago this month.  But Keith blazed a path for musicians that followed after such as the likes of Rich Mullins, Wes King, Steve Green, Caedman’s Call, and many others.  Below are the lyrics of his song “The Grace by Which I Stand.” 

Lord, the feelings are not the same, I guess I’m older, I guess I’ve changed. And how I wish it had been explained, that as you’re growing you must remember, That nothing lasts, except the grace of God, by which I stand, in Jesus. I know that I would surely fall away, except for grace, by which I’m saved. Lord, I remember that special way, I vowed to serve you, when it was brand new. But like Peter, I can’t even watch and pray, one hour with you, and I bet, I could deny you too. But nothing lasts, except the grace of God, by which I stand, in Jesus. I’m sure that my whole life would waste away, except for grace, by which I’m saved. But nothing lasts, except the grace of God, by which I stand, in Jesus. I know that I would surely fall away, except for grace, by which I’m saved.
