At the break of day, before I go my way

to all the give and taking that I face,

every place I go, with every friend or foe,

in all I do I know I'm in need of grace.

         

In noon’s activity, with every hurt I see

and every bright ambition that I chase,

in courage or in stealth, in poverty or wealth,

in sickness or in health I'm in need of grace.

 

I'm in need of faith for restoration

in the moment of betrayal,

in need of love that gives forgiveness

when I hammer in the nail,

in need of hope of resurrection

when the powers of death prevail:

when all is said and done I'm in need of grace.

 

At the set of sun, when my race is run

and I lay down upon my resting place,

for all that's passed my way and all that’s left to say

every single day I'm in need of grace;

every single day I'm in need of grace.
