In response to a songwriting challenge organised by Resound Worship, I wrote this song.

The challenge was to try to write a very short song. One that only has (and needs) a few lines.

This led me to thinking about saying the Grace to each other as we leave church and I put my own evangelistic slant on it (as you can see in the lyrics below).

I think it fills the brief quite well. What do you think?

Please feel able to use this song as part of worship at your church. You will find an audio sample and free chord chart below to help you to do this. I do ask that if you do use it, please remember to report its use in your church’s CCLI report as this helps me keep this website online to continue to share worship songs with others. Many thanks.

The Grace

CCLI number: 7127390

May the grace of Jesus Christ,
The love of God the Father

And the peace and fellowship
Of the Spirit be with you

Go in peace, go in joy
Take this love into the streets
