Matt Redman – You Alone Can Rescue lyrics

Who, oh Lord, could save themselves
Their own soul could heal?
Our shame was deeper than the sea
Your grace is deeper still (x2)

You alone can rescue
You alone can save
You alone can lift us from the grave
You came down to find us
Led us out of death
To You alone belongs the highest praise
(To You alone belongs the highest praise x2)

You, oh Lord, have made a way
The great divide You heal
For when our hearts were far away
Your love went further still
Yes, Your love goes further still

We lift up our eyes, lift up our eyes
You're the Giver of Life
We lift up our eyes, lift up our eyes
You're the Giver of Life (x4)

    This song gripped my heart when it first came out and still does today. We sang it at church Sunday and I awoke with these lines going through my mind. I know God was using it to give me His peace. Salvation belongs to Jesus Christ alone! "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God - not the results of works, so that no one may boast." (Ephesians 2: 8-9) What a wonderful Savior!
