03.30.2012 / Fave Friday

This week Grace is my fave.  I was out taking a walk the other day and put on one of my favorite U2 songs, Grace.  I forgot how beautiful it was.  I think it just might be my one of my favorite songs.  I thought I’d share the words with you.

Grace
She takes the blame
She covers the shame
Removes the stain
It could be her name

Grace
It’s a name for a girl
It’s also a thought that
Changed the world

And when she walks on the street
You can hear the strings
Grace finds goodness
In everything

Grace
She’s got the walk
Not on a ramp or on chalk
She’s got the time to talk

She travels outside
Of karma, karma
She travels outside
Of karma

When she goes to work
You can hear the strings
Grace finds beauty
In everything

Grace
She carries a world on her hips
No champagne flute for her lips
No twirls or skips
Between her fingertips

She carries a pearl
In perfect condition
What once was hurt
What once was friction
What left a mark
No longer stings

Because grace makes beauty
Out of ugly things

Grace finds beauty
In everything

Grace finds goodness
In everything

What is your favorite song?  Or a favorite?  Do you get more lost in the words or the actual music?  Of course I have to like the sound but I’m definitely a lyrics girl.  Happy Weekend lovelies.  I’ll leave you with a few of my faves :

One of my favorite songs (right now) is BEAUTIFUL THINGS by Gungor. It’s about God and it pierces right into my heart! Here are some lyrics.

All this pain
I wonder if I’ll ever find my way
I wonder if my life could really change at all
All this earth
Could all that is lost ever be found
Could a garden come up from this ground at all

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us

All around
Hope is springing up from this old ground
Out of chaos life is being found in You

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us

You make me new, You are making me new
You make me new, You are making me new
You are making me new
