Falling Short Of God's Grace

-

I

I cannot have it all

All I have today

Is all I can be given

From a God who answers

Prayers by faith only

Well, I must not have enough

Or I would have it all

There must be parts of me

Just not given to God

My time time and devotion

So set aside for my rhymes

Couldn't put God first

Even if I tried

So I'm not gonna make a wish

I'm just gonna accept

God's distance the way it is

And finish what I started

Now matter how far away

That God's love slips from my grips
