Grace Like Rain

Produced by Jason Latshaw




1. Reached Down


I fell so far I did not know anyone could save me
I could not find a light as far as I could see
My body lay broken at the bottom of my prison
My hope washed away as the waves crashed over me

You reached down and saved me
You parted the sea so I could breathe
You reached down and saved me
You pulled me from all that was drowning me
I could not see the top of the well in which I’d fallen

I was choking on the rising tide of filth and shame
You pulled me from the mouth of hell so you could hold me
You knew You’d save me long before I called Your name

2. This Fragile Breath


I searched the world for a song that I could sing
Praise to my King, a gift that I could bring
But no music I found could compare to you
Not one could do justice to your glory
What are my songs compared to yours

You speak with thunder and lightning
Your voice shakes the mountains
The foundations of the earth
All I can offer is this fragile breath
With each one I’ll praise You
With each one I’ll praise You more

I searched the world for a poem I could read
A rhyme that would bring glory to my King
But no writing I found was worthy of
This God high above all other gods
What are my words compared to yours

Speak to me, speak to me please
Won’t You speak to me

3. Shepherd


Shepherd, Your sheep are weary
Cold and tired, battered and bruised and torn
Shepherd, Your sheep are hungry
We got what we wanted but we still need something more

We need to hear Your voice
Whatever You might say
We just need to hear Your voice
Show us the way

Shepherd, Your sheep are lost
We chased our wants that we thought were needs
Now we can’t get home
Shepherd, Your sheep are longing
We ate and we ran, and we played and we danced, but we’re empty

Shepherd, these sheep are Yours
We tried to be king, but we don’t want to anymore

4. Grace Like Rain


Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I’m found
Was blind but now I see so clearly

Hallelujah, grace like rain falls down on me
Hallelujah, all my stains are washed away
They’re washed away

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We’ve no less days to sing Your praise
Than when we first begun

5. Romans 12:1


Brothers and sisters, I beg you
In light of all He’s done for us
To offer yourselves in worship to our God
Brothers and sisters, I ask you
Present yourselves a living sacrifice
Holy and acceptable to our God

Jesus, we come to worship You
Jesus, we come to lift You high
Jesus, we come to honor You with our lives

Father, we come to You humbly
Recognizing Your infinite glory
Jesus, we’re so grateful for Your sacrifice
Spirit, we ask You to fill us
To come in and change us and move us
To carry our mortal worship to the divine

6. Still Here Waiting


It’s cold outside
Or is that just the chill I feel inside from standing here
Steeping in my shame
I can’t deny
I’m surrounded by the very thing You freed me from
That’s why I can’t come home

I don’t know where I turned around
From chasing what I always found completed me
More than I could dream
I don’t know why I can’t remain
Safe here where I always came to meet with you
And You always met with me
And You’re still here waiting

I fail to see
Why You’d still be waiting to forgive me
After all that I have done
But I cannot say
That one time I returned and You had turned away
Your love never fails

And You say, “Come home” and You’ll be there
And I can run into Your arms

7. Come Ye Sinners


Come ye sinners, poor and needy
Weak and wounded, sick and sore
Jesus ready, stands to save you
Full of pity, love, and power

Come ye thirsty, come and welcome
God’s free bounty glorify
True belief and true repentance
Every grace that brings you nigh

I will arise and go to Jesus
He will embrace me in His arms
And in the arms of my dear Savior
Oh, there are ten thousand charms

Come ye weary, heavy-laden
Lost and ruined by the fall
If you tarry until you’re better
You will never come at all

8. You Are


I need some substance in this relativistic world
I need some truth in the middle of all these lies
I need some comfort to wipe away these tears
I need someone to tell me there’s more to this life

You are the Truth, You are the Life
You are more than I ever dreamed, and
You are the Door through which I find
You are all that I’ll ever need
You are God

I need some wisdom to choose which way to walk
I need some strength to take this very step
I need some faith to help these blinded eyes to see
I need something more than everything inside of me

You are the Truth, You are the Life (You are the Way)
You are more than I ever dreamed, and
You are the Door through which I find (You are the Vine)
You are all that I’ll ever need, You are God

9. Kindness


Open up the skies of mercy
Rain down your cleansing flood
Healing waters, they rise around us
Hear our cries, oh Lord
And let ‘em rise

‘Cause it’s Your kindness Lord that leads us to repentance
Your favor, Lord, is our desire
And it’s Your beauty, Lord, that makes us stand in silence
Your love, Your love is better than life

We can feel Your mercy falling
You are turning our hearts back again
Hear our praises, they rise to heaven
Draw us near, Lord, and meet us here

Your love is better than life
Your grace and Your mercy is better than life
Your kindness, Lord is better than life

10. Lay It Down


Jesus died for our sins
His blood washed away these stains
He died to give you freedom
So, why do you still wear those chains, chains, chains, chains

Lay your heavy burdens down, down
Lay your heavy burdens down
Lay your heavy burdens down, down
Lay your heavy burdens down, down, down, down, down

Jesus died to give us life
A little joy in the midst of pain
He paid your debt in full and you are not guilty
So, why do you still wear those chains, chains, chains

If I lay it down, You set me free

11. Only One Thing


Only one thing cannot fail
Only one thing will never die
Only one thing is sure and stable
Even when I turn and turn and turn
Only one thing, deeper than the ocean
Only one thing is higher still
Only one thing has such devotion
Waiting arms wide until my will gives way

Your love reaches across the miles I raced
To separate me from You
Your love cradles me like a child when I finally reach for you
Your love’s beyond my understanding
Only one thing

Only one thing is always faithful
Only one thing is ever pure
Only one thing, completely able
Only one thing will endure forever

I could sing of Your love forever

12. Wait For Your Rain


I cannot believe I’m this dirty
I’m ashamed to even ask to be clean
’Cause I can’t think of anyone less worthy
I have nothing to offer or to bring

I throw myself on Your mercy
I throw myself at Your feet
I throw my filth on the grace of One
Who’s beauty is beyond me
And I wait
And I wait

I’m not even sure how I got here
Wondered to this darkness from Your light
I still remember walking in the garden with You
Now I’m just stumbling through this night

I throw myself on Your mercy
I throw myself at Your feet
I throw my filth on the grace of One
Who’s beauty is beyond me
And I wait

I wait for Your rain to fall
The waves of Your grace wash over me
I wait for Your rain to fall
Strange how forgiveness comes so easily
When I call Your name
And wait for Your rain

Lord, this desert is killing me
My throat’s dry from screaming Your name
I want to come home but the sands of time surround me
The dirt’s finally covered my shame
