But For The Grace Of God
Recorded by Pat Boone
Written by Jack Lebsock

A tramp on the street homeless and weak
D7 G
Could be I but for the grace of God

The steel of my soul could have weakened at best
D7 G
Had I traveled the byways he's trod

Oh merciful Father oh wonderful God
D7 G
Thy Hands have spared me these things
May my heart know compassion
As a child when she holds
A7 D7
A bird with a broken wing

Dear Lord make me strong

Not to boast of my strength
G7 C
But to lend it to the weak and down trod
May I always remember things dear to my heart
D7 G
Are mine to hold only by the grace of God

Dear Lord if it weren't for You

I could have been that poor tramp
Or sleep out in the alley tonight
Only for the grace of God

I could have been born blind

With no eyes to see a wonderful world

That He made for us

Or I could have been born weak
And had to have somebody take care of me

For the rest of my days
Thank You Lord

Repeat #2,3
