When I stand in the presence of a Holy God,
And I flee and I cover my face,
My heart filled with shame,
Yet You still call my name,
and You break me by the power of Your grace.
Break us by the power of Your grace, O Lord,
Won’t You break us by the power of Your grace.
Break us, remake us, don’t let the sorrow take us;
O break us by the power of Your grace.
When I walk through the evil and strife of the earth
And I turn and I cover my eyes,
The arms that do violence
While our hearts watch in silence—
Won’t you break them by the power of Your grace.
When my flesh, it shall fail, and my work here is done,
And the heavens and earth are remade,
Though I sowed here in sorrow
It will be glorious tomorrow
He’ll remake it by the power of His grace!
