01. Amazing

Where Angels Fear To Tread
by Matt Redman



 

A love so undeserved, a gift that's free
You lavish me
A peace I could not earn
And mercy for the freedom of my soul

That's what's so amazing about Your grace
That's what's so amazing about Your grace

Forgiveness runs so deep
Within Your heart of loving kindness
And should a soul forget
The cross of Christ reminds us every day

That's what's so amazing about Your grace
That's what's so amazing about Your grace
Lord, every day pour on me
Your blessings of eternity
And that's what's so amazing about Your grace

Freely I've received, now freely to give
Freely I've received, now freely to give
Freely I've received, now freely to give
Give my life to You...



Behind the Song:
'If Im honest I find it pretty hard to write up-tempo celebratory songs. Slow songs come easier for me you sit in your room just singing out your tender thoughts to God and it all flows pretty naturally. But for me, up-tempo songs take a little bit more determination. Over the years Ive learnt there are ways round it like listening out for interesting drum grooves and imagining them when playing or writing with a band or drum machine.

I actually wrote this song about 5am one morning in California! Id been thinking about the whole grace theme for while wanting to write a song describing the essence of what grace is. So Id been collecting little phrases: 'a love so undeserved', 'a gift thats free', 'a peace I could not earn' etc. So one morning I was up crazily early to work, picked up my guitar and this song flowed out pretty quickly. It must be the earliest in the morning Ive ever written a song and the fact is was an up-tempo one was a real bonus!' - Matt Redman
