Picture of Grace



Picture someone with no reason for living with no hope of smiling again,
Imagine a world with no golden day brake enclosed by the blackness of sin
Then this seed is baked in beauty of glory transformed by loves sweet embrace
The hands of my savior erased all my sorrow and painted this picture of grace.

How skillful the hands of the artist, who painted this picture of me.
He saw with the eyes of a master, how beautiful my life could be,
Where once was a portrait of gloom and despair this masterpiece stands in its place.
Its signed with his blood and it framed with his glory, this beautiful picture of grace.

Ashes and ruin that once filled the picture have vanished and faded from view,
With beautiful touches of mercy adorn this picture he painted anew.
Such peace fills the eyes of the one he created a smile gently rests on his face,
Since Jesus erased all the guilt of my past and painted this picture of grace.
