How Can It Be Lyrics

I am guilty

Ashamed of what I’ve done, what I’ve become

These hands are dirty

I dare not lift them up to the Holy one

 

Chorus

You plead my cause

You right my wrongs

You break my chains

You overcome

You gave Your life

To give me mine

You say that I am free

How can it be

How can it be

 

I’ve been hiding

Afraid I’ve let you down, inside I doubt

That You could love me

But in Your eyes there’s only grace now

 

Chorus

You plead my cause

You right my wrongs

You break my chains

You overcome

You gave Your life

To give me mine

You say that I am free

How can it be

How can it be

 

Bridge

Though I fall, You can make me new

From this death I will rise with You

Oh the grace reaching out for me

How can it be

How can it be

 

 

Chorus

You plead my cause

You right my wrongs

You break my chains

You overcome

You gave Your life

To give me mine

You say that I am free

How can it be

How can it be

  • This song really “grabbed” me when I first heard it! I love the simple message, easy to sing! However, in the printed words on the website, I must let you know that the word “brake” should instead be “break!” I just have a spelling thing, sorry! 😉

    Dear Lauren,
    I am a seasoned Christian but God continues to purify us in our walk to eternity. This Album has spoken to me at just the right time.

    God has used your beautiful voice, your intentional lyrics which come from a deep place in your heart. Thank you.

    Something had been troubling me in my heart and I had difficulty processing it and found myself closing down. I never want to be away from the Lord, although I know He never leaves me or changes I felt an empty place within and I couldn’t seem to breakthrough the past 2 weeks.
    My recently redeemed sis gave me your CD as a mother’s day gift. I am not a mother but recently God spoke to me that I am a spiritual Mum to many and it broke me. What a beautiful gift. I have been listening and each word touches me, your words have been written for such a time as this with heart felt truth that breaks chains and pulls us closer. How can it be? His grace has reached out to me again. And I will rise and not grow weary and find rest in Gods everlasting arms.

    Thank you
    May God bless this ministry double fold.
    Bless you

    In Jesus’ love
