lyrics

Words: Mark Heimermann
Music: Mark Heimermann and Toby McKeehan
(Romans 8:35-39; I Timothy 1:15-16)

In the closets of my mind
I have thoughts unfit for swine
Secrets that I dare not tell
You know them well
'Neath a veil of innocence
I disguise my decadence
But somehow You see through it all
And love me still, You love me still
Even in my darkest hour
You display Your mercy's power
Since I met You, I've discovered

[Chorus]
Can't get away, can't get away
From Your love
Can't get away, can't get away
From Your love
I may run and I may hide
But You will seek and You will find
I can't get away, can't get away
From Your love

Knowing I deserve to burn
Eternal life I try to earn
Motivated by my guilt
I slave away
Imprisoned by the laws of man
I sink deeper in the sand
Will I ever realize
I'm in Your grace, I'm in Your grace?
Covered by the blood of Christ
I don't have to pay the price
There's no escaping paradise

[Chorus]
Even in my darkest hour
You display Your mercy's power
Since I met You, I've discovered

[Chorus]
