Beyond Melody

How easy at times to be singing songs
And write profound words that makes me look like I’m strong
But then all along I could all be wrong
And see I am but human after all

So I’ll sing not because I can
And write songs not just because of who I am
It never was all about me
But all about the One
Whose unfailing grace resounds beyond melody

Not at all this strength to boast
It’s not how I can tune out this melancholy
Oh how it breaks me
When my weakness is wrapped in God’s mercy

Beyond the melody
Beyond this poetry
Beyond faults and folly
His love is upholding me
