Dei Gratia (By The Grace Of God)


When my ways have errs,
and my worlds in despair.
Dei Gratia, He'll show me He cares.

When I'm left in dismay,
and it's hard to see another day.
Dei Gratia, He'll show me the way.

When I show that I'm weak,
and thing may seem bleak.
Dei Gratia, He'll show me the peak.

When I return to the loam.
This earthly world I won't roam.
Dei Gratia, I pray He calls me home.
