Living in the limelight of my own expectations
Beating myself up for all my foibles and failings
Never never happy
Always always worried
Weight of the world on my shoulders

Across a crowded room I saw him happy and laughing
Could this be the same God who I thought I'd been serving?
"Everything I have is yours it has been all along"
Is what he said

And will you dance with me till the sun comes up?
Cause everybody needs unending love
And will you take my hand and lead me to the place
Where sinners sing amazing grace
Where sinners sing

It's the dawning of hope when we confess we are sinners
So why eat helpings of guilt while we pretend to be winners?
Something isn't adding up and I'm no mathematician, no

It's the sick not the healthy Jesus came here to heal
But once he's done what he does the transformation is real
So why do we keep living in the shadows of self-condemnation?
Let's come into the light

And will you dance with me till the sun comes up?
Cause everybody needs unending love
And will you take my hand and lead me to the place
Where sinners sing amazing grace
Where sinners sing amazing grace

    General CommentI like this song out of all her songs. It's cheery but not too biblical.
