After today I'll get me out of this place. into the world so I can set a new pace. seems I'm on my own from here- vision doesn't seem so clear.
won't You lay me in Your hands of grace.

I've got a funny feeling that I'm gonna go away- gonna face my future, gonna try to make the grade. I've got a ways to go from here and vision doesn't seem so clear, but praise God He's got a plan and understanding isn't my place.

after today I'm gonna come face to face. with a new world who knows I'm feeling this way. I've got a ways to go from here- I'm gonna overcome these fears. still I'm gonna need Your hands of grace.

I'll be a bigger man... I'll pray a bigger prayer... I'll dream a bigger dream...for today.

    General Commentthis has to be my favorite live sanctus song. it is amazing...
    "praise God He's got a plan and understanding isn't my place." that line is just an everyday reminder to me that everythings going to be okay. yeah. rock on.

    General CommentI heard an interview with Matt from Sanctus and he said he wrote this after finishing high school and not knowing where he was going or what he would do after that.

    Awesome song. And yeah, that lyric with "understanding isn't my place" is so true and so humbling.

    General CommentThis song has taken on a completely different meaning to me in the last week. I've known it for years and years and had a more vague, general sense of what it meant but this week, its kind of become a theme song of mine.

    I'm 20, a college grad, and looking at starting life. I'm feeling God's calling on my life to do ministry overseas for a time ("Got a funny feeling that I'm gonna go away....got a ways to go from here and vision doesn't seem so clear but praise God. He's got a plan. Understanding isn't my place.")

    Life looks pretty frightening because I'm probably gonna be leaving every comfort I've ever known and left to rely entirely upon God (I'm gonna overcome these fears, still I'm gonna need Your hands of grace.")
