Sometimes I believe all the lies
So I can do the things I despise
And everyday I am swayed
By whatever is on my mind

I hear it all depends on my faith
So I'm feeling precarious
The only problem I have
With these mysteries
Is they're so mysterious

And like a consumer
I've been thinking
If I could just get a bit more
More than my fifteen minutes of faith
Then I'd be secure

[Chorus]
My faith is like shifting sand
Changed by every wave
My faith is like shifting sand
So I stand on grace

Stand on grace

I've begged You for some proof
For my Thomas eyes to see
A slithering staff, a leprous hand
And lions resting lazily

A glimpse of Your back-side glory
And this soaked alter going ablaze
But you know I've seen so much
And I explained it away

[Chorus]

Waters rose as my doubts resigned
My sand-castle faith, it slipped away
Found my self standing on Your grace
It'd been there all the time

[Chorus: x2]

Stand on grace
