Don’t Let The Grace Be Gone

Don’t let the grace be gone
Or I won’t find a home
Don’t let the grace be gone
Cause I can’t stand to roam.

Don’t let the grace be gone
When every door is closed
Don’t let the grace be gone
Please tell me there’s a home.

Life is full of enemies
That hunt you down like dogs
And hurl their spears like catapults
And chase you till the dawn

The running and the hiding make
Your weary soul despair
The sounds of your pursuers boots
Smashing through the air.

Don’t let the grace be gone
Or I won’t find a home
Don’t let the grace be gone
Cause I can’t stand to roam.

Don’t let the grace be gone
When every door is closed
Don’t let the grace be gone
Please tell me there’s a home.

When I was a little child
And life took all my youth
I looked for death in every hole
Searching for the truth.

I spent my days ‘twixt laden shelves
Reading every page
And talked to big ones more than not
To listen for a sage.

Don’t let the grace be gone
Or I won’t find a home
Don’t let the grace be gone
Cause I can’t stand to roam.

Don’t let the grace be gone
When every door is closed
Don’t let the grace be gone
Please tell me there’s a home.

All the pathways that I took
Led me all around
Didn’t find my death or truth
Just beaten to the ground.

But angels came with heavy wings
To make me turn around
Let me hear them beat the air
Their wings a holy sound.

Don’t let the grace be gone
Or I won’t find a home
Don’t let the grace be gone
Cause I can’t stand to roam.

Don’t let the grace be gone
When every door is closed
Don’t let the grace be gone
Please tell me there’s a home.

  1. Oh man, this is Incredible! Loved it all, but my fave part is the stanza “But angels came with heavy wings”–whoa, that really meets me in the heart. I so want to be one of those angels. God bless you abundantly today–with peace and comfort and courage. Thanks for the great poem!!
