With Dignity and Grace

I’m thankful for You
For all that I have
You alone are worthy
In You alone I can
I’d rather be a doorkeeper in Your house
Than to be loved by millions of men
I’d rather be a slave to Christ
Than to freely live in sin
Because now I can see
Now I can breathe
In You I’m whole
I’m truly set free
And I never want to go back to that place
I’d rather live a life of true love
And die with dignity and grace
