You gave me courage to believe
That all Your Goodness I could see
Cause if it had not been for You
Standing on my side
Where would I be

CHORUS:
If not for Your Goodness
If not for Your Grace
I don't know where I would be today
If not for Your Kindness
I never could say, I'm still standing
If not for Your Mercy
If not for Your Love
I most likely would have given up
If not for Your Favor
I never could say, I'm still standing
But by the Grace of God

To You I lift my offering
And set my heart on higher things
Cause if it had not been for You
Standing on my side
Where would I be

On Christ, The Solid Rock I'll Stand
All other ground is sinking sand
On Christ, The Solid Rock I'll Stand
But by the Grace of God

I'm still standing, I'm still standing
I'm still standing
But by the Grace
But by the Grace of God

    It's declaring that it wasn't about me, it wasn't about ourselves but because of
    him. It's a declaration that only god is the reason why i still have strength, hope, and courage to go on. It's a way of saying i can not go on on this life by myself, that i need god, i need his favor, his love and his grace.

    acknowledging that apart from GOD we are NOTHING
    its all because of his love to us,his grace,mercy,kindness and goodness...
    the strength and courage to stand for HIs GLORY is a GREAT Privilege He had given for all of us...
