Grace In Sand

 

Hush my mouth oh mind my heart

Open shades o' gray

Work my hands holdin' face

Steadfast by grace in sand

 

Rags on a bush turnin' the ground

Rollin' steep but still

Precious days shine in place

Steadfast by grace in sand

 

Those came undone are plenty now

Fallin' under hardened

Showin' shaky tongues in hand

Steadfast by grace in sand

 

            Songs out of love not long enough

            Borne a wounded son

            Livin' for goodness sakes he stands

            Steadfast by grace in sand

 

Now pictures  tell the strength of ten

Where breakin' backs have been

Knowin' the chains over pain

Steadfast by grace in sand

 

(Chorus)

 

I know a shameful lazy man

Better than he knows me

But I must confess one witness heard

One man kind thoughtful word

 

(Chorus)

 

Hush my mouth oh mind my heart

Open shades o' gray...
