Accepted, highly favored of the Lord
Forgiven by Your love I am transformed
It's not what I'll do but what You've done for me
And by Your grace oh God I stand with my head held high

I receive Your love, I receive Your love for me
I receive Your love, I know I am accepted, oh

Established, ever blameless in Your Son
Forever I am chosen to be loved
It's not by my works, by Your work in me, yeah
And by Your grace oh God I stand with my head held high

I receive Your love, I receive Your love for me
I receive Your love, I know I am accepted
I receive Your love, I receive Your love for me
I receive Your love, I know I am accepted

Behold all things have been made new
My past has gone, my shame renewed
You gave Your Son Your love for me
Now at the cross I am made free

I receive Your love, I receive Your love for me
I receive Your love, I know I am accepted
I receive Your love, I receive Your love for me
I receive Your love, I know I am accepted
I receive Your love

Where would I be?
Where would I be if not for Your grace?

    This song is about god loves. God loves regardless of what a person has done, experienced, failed, or succeeded. God's love is not conditional, nor is it based on accomplishments. He loves solely because he is love. God's love is a gift. Choose to receive the gift he has given for you.. There's nothing like it.
