"Grace" as written by and Dave Evans Adam Clayton....
She takes the blame
She covers the shame
Removes the stain
It could be her name

It's the name for a girl
It's also a thought that
Changed the world

And when she walks on the street
You can hear the strings
Grace finds goodness
In everything

She's got the walk
Not on a ramp or on chalk
She's got the time to talk

She travels outside
Of karma, karma
She travels outside
Of karma

When she goes to work
You can hear her strings
Grace finds beauty
In everything

She carries a world on her hips
No champagne flute for her lips
No twirls or skips between her fingertips

She carries a pearl
In perfect condition
What once was hurt
What once was friction
What left a mark
No longer stings

Because Grace makes beauty
Out of ugly things

Grace finds beauty
In everything

Grace finds goodness in everything

    General CommentThis isn't just about God's grace to humanity;I believe that this song teaches us that we have the power, through grace, to heal the world.
    "She travels outside of karma" explains it: the concept of karma is "what goes around comes around", or we eventually get what we deserve. But Grace is an "unearned blessing." Grace is the opposite of Karma; Grace means we get more than we deserve. From God, yes, but also from each other. When we respond to thoughtless, unkind acts with kindness and forgiveness, we transform that act into a perfect pearl. It is a gift to all parties involved. That transformation can change the world. It's the real message of love that we are supposed to have for each other. The only Christian commandment: Love your neighbor.
    Thank you Bono!
