If It Had Not Been

IF IT HAD NOT BEEN
FOR YOUR GOODNESS
IF IT HAD NOT BEEN
FOR YOUR GRACE
IF IT HAD NOT BEEN
FOR YOUR MERCY
I WOULD NOT BE SO AMAZED
AT THE WONDERS OF YOUR LOVE
LIKE NONE IVE EVER KNOWN
AND THE BEAUTY OF YOUR HOLINESS
JUST CANNOT BE OUT DONE

CAUSE WHEN I LOOK TO THE HEAVENS
I FEEL SUCH PEACE AND JOY
WHEN I CALL OUT FOR YOUR TOUCH
I FIND REST IN THE HOPE
OF THE GLORY OF THE CROSS
IN THE TRUTH OF YOUR WORD
AS YOU SPEAK LIFE INTO MY HEART
YOUR BREATHING LIFE INTO MY SOUL
AND IF IT HAD NOT BEEN FOR YOU, JESUS
I WOULD NOT KNOW

AND IF IT HAD NOT BEEN
FOR YOUR SACRIFICE
WHERE WOULD I BE TODAY
IF IT HAD NOT BEEN
FOR YOUR NAIL SCARRED HANDS
ID BE LOST BEYOND
ALL THE PAIN
