Bob Dylan Saving Grace Lyrics

Last updated: 06/30/2014 10:08:42 PM



If you find it in Your heart, can I be forgiven ?
Guess I owe You some kind of apology
I've escaped death so many times, I know I'm only living
By the saving grace that's over me.

By this time I'd-a thought I would be sleeping
In a pine box for all eternity
My faith keeps me alive, but I still be weeping
For the saving grace that's over me.

Well, the death of life, then come the resurrection
Wherever I am welcome is where I'll be
I put all my confidence in Him, my sole protection
Is the saving grace that's over me.

Well, the devil's shining light, it can be most blinding
But to search for love, that ain't no more than vanity
As I look around this world all that I'm finding
Is the saving grace that's over me.

The wicked know no peace and you just can't fake it
There's only one road and it leads to Calvary
It gets discouraging at times, but I know I'll make it
By the saving grace that's over me.

Saving Grace | Reviewer: Glory Cloud Revelation | 6/29/14

This song is one of the most beautiful. We like the original, and the new version. Yes, we will make it by the "saving grace" that's over us. I could feel the beauty of His Holy Spirit's presence when I hear this song. You may have wandered from the Lord, occasionaly, but He hasn't left you. Our God is a "hiding God"He'll come out of being hid to us, when we seek Him with "all of our heart". (I have found that our seeking Him with what we think is 'all of our heart' may be different from His standards. The key is to "Be still and know that He is God", wait patiently for Him to manifest in the beauty of His Presence. These are the steps I take for Him to come. Since the Holy Bible, the Word of God says, "If I hide iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me", if I feel there is a hint of this, I plead the Blood of Jesus (the atonement Lamb of God) over me and make the decision with my will to turn away from all ofl my sins (repentance, surrender)

Then, I enter into His Presence with praise and thanksgiving, worshiping Him through singing songs or speaking it. Now, when His awesome Presence comes, it's the time to ask Him for what you need or desire.Within Your temple (our body is a temple of the Holy Ghost) , Oh, God, we meditate on Your unfailing love. (Psalm 48:9) I meditate on knowing that He loves me so much that He would have died on that cross just for me if I were the only person in the World. I take time to think about the pain He must have felt with the spikes in His hands and feet, a crown of thorns on His precious Head, and His back beaten and bloody from the flesh being torn when they whiped Him. (this same love He has for you) Sometimes tears come to my eyes as I say, Oh, Jesus! I am so sorry you had to do this for me so I could be in heaven with You, and stand holy before God Almighty, the great I AM. (11 Ciorinthians 5:21) "FOR HE HATH MADE HIM TO BE SIN FOR US, WHO KNEW NO SIN; THAT WE MAY BE MADE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN HIM."

Praise the Lord! We do not have to fear the "Judgment Day" if we are in Christ Jesus. Our works will be judged, some will be burned and never to be be remembered, and some will be rewarded for all eternity! But our soul will be saved by our Saviour for those who "endure till the end" (Matthew 24)

DELIGHT YOURSELF IN THE LORD, AND HE WILL GIVE YOU THE DESIRES OF YOUR HEART. Psalm 37:4 Bob Dylan's song, "Saving Grace" is about this kind of love.

Thankyou, Bob. we love it!
