Grace Came Running


Grace Came Running

"I wanted to write a song to evoke joy at the thought of God's glorious grace. I hammered out a reggae chorus and held on to it for a month or so. When I linked up with my friends, Aaron and Micah, we finished it in an hour or so. It really didn't strike me until we sang it at a gathering in Atlanta a few months later. The song came to life that night. There is something so powerful about the thought go God chasing after us with his grace." (Dee Wilson)

While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. This is a celebration song about the indefatigable --and incomprehensible -- grace of God to seek and save the lost, as well as to sustain us through to the end. (Aaron Keyes)

                                      Dmaj 7 Bm7
That's when grace came running, running
C#7(+5)       F#m7
Grace came running after me 
Washing over me

G#m7(no5) A#m7(no5) Bm7 Amaj7
When I was lost and far away
                     G#m7   C#7(+5) F#m7
Drifting like a ship without a sail
When I was still your enemy
That's when grace came, that's when grace came Running after me

When I was going my own way
Running from my home like a prodigal
Still I see you run to me
That's when grace came, that's when grace came

Caught in a love I can't explain
Each and every day when I rise and fall
I know I'm carried all the way
Grace keeps running, grace keeps running

Grace just keeps on running, running 
Grace keeps running after me 
Grace, just like a river, river
Washing over me

      E7                              C#7
If it seems too good to be true
It's just like you
You're always surprising
C#7 D7 D#7 E7
And if it feels too big to embrace It must be grace
