Stand on . . .

When we stand before God do we stand on our own faith? I hope not, because, if you’re like me there are days when you just don’t have the answers and there is doubt. And I just can’t make my belief cover my short comings. So when I stand before God if I stand at all it will be on His grace . . .

Shifting Sand by Caedmon’s Call

    Sometimes I believe all the lies
    So I can do the things I should despise
    And every day I am swayed
    By whatever is on my mind

      I hear it all depends on my faith
      So I’m feeling precarious
      The only problem I have with these mysteries
      Is they’re so mysterious

        And like a consumer I’ve been thinking
        If I could just get a bit more
        More than my 15 minutes of faith,
        Then I’d be secure

          My faith is like shifting sand
          Changed by every wave
          My faith is like shifting sand
          So I stand on grace

            I’ve begged you for some proof
            For my Thomas eyes to see
            A slithering staff, a leperous hand
            And lions resting lazily

              A glimpse of your back-side glory
              And this soaked altar going ablaze
              But you know I’ve seen so much
              I explained it away

                Waters rose as my doubts reigned
                My sand-castle faith, it slipped away
                Found myself standing on your grace
                It’d been there all the time

                  Stand on grace

                    This is one of my favorite Caedmon’s Call songs. It took me a while before I got it though.

                    It is also fun to sing “I stand on grapes.” just to change it up. 😛
