#MusicMonday: ‘Amazing Grace’ by Phil Wickham #Christian #video

If you’ve ever seen me dance, you know that I don’t hold back.

Well, I don’t usually hold back. I admit that church is the one place I consistently find myself holding back. I mean, no one else is dancing… Well, no one that isn’t on stage.

But this song… I can hardly contain myself.

It is one of my all-time favorites. I know all the words. And they play it frequently at church. Oh to hear it live… The powerful lyrics of this song bring tears of gratitude to eyes every time I am blessed to participate in singing along.

If this is your first #MusicMonday post – know that I’m ALL about lyrics and this song has some great ones. Plus, the building momentum of a soft meditative praise that builds and bursts into gratitude feels like pure love for Jesus Christ spilling over from my heart. So good.

So essentially the song says- that here is the incredible God who does all these awesome (truest sense of the word) things… and has knowledge and power incomprehensible to every human… and He’s perfect, sinless and the most glorious thing EVER. And then He decides to do something that doesn’t really make sense.

What does the Most High do for you and me?

He bears my cross. He takes my place.

Oh wow. My puny little brain can’t even grasp the enormity of this gesture. The only perfect human gives His life so that you and I may be free both on earth and in heaven.

Why? Because He loves me THAT much?! Really? Why me? I’m kinda rotten inside at times. Why would the Most Powerful do that for me?

And with all of those thoughts and feelings of gratitude for this AMAZING GRACE, I sing and DANCE. And usually cry in humility. It’s a beautiful thing. Enjoy the little ping in your heart.

LYRICS: This Is Amazing Grace

[Verse 1:]
Who breaks the power of sin and darkness
Whose love is mighty and so much stronger
The King of Glory, the King above all kings

Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder
And leaves us breathless in awe and wonder
The King of Glory, the King above all kings

[Chorus:]
This is amazing grace
This is unfailing love
That You would take my place
That You would bear my cross
You lay down Your life
That I would be set free
Oh, Jesus, I sing for
All that You’ve done for me

[Verse 2:]
Who brings our chaos back into order
Who makes the orphan a son and daughter
The King of Glory, the King of Glory

Who rules the nations with truth and justice
Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance
The King of Glory, the King above all kings

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy, worthy, worthy
Oh
