Lyrics

Verse 1
We were free, we were brave. We thought Providence our slave
'Til the sea rose to fight, sent us hurling to our graves
We cried out as we drowned, but our voices made no sound in the waves

Verse 2
Not a truce, nor a bribe could help us in the tide
All our faith, all our pride, our strength was cast aside
We were lost to the sea, sunk and buried underneath, but I survived
And it came without a warning, swept upon us in the morning
In the middle of our laughter, when all was well
That unspeakable disaster fell

Verse 3
We were kings, we were kin. Fought as brothers to the end
We were drunk, we were hazed. We threw caution to the wind
We were gods, so we thought, but we learnt who we were then — only men, only men
So pay attention to the warning, if you want to see the morning
In the middle of our laughter, when all was well
That unspeakable disaster crashed into our anchor
Sent us falling to our Maker
So heed the words of one who lived to tell the tale
Learn a lesson from a man who failed

Chorus
And I don't know why I survived. I, too, deserved to die
But Providence has turned His eye
Grace has chosen me to stay, to live another day
To give my heart a word to write
Of peace that reached through the debris of that wreckage I call me
And brought me safely through the night
Of love stronger than the flood that fills my heart like blood
And keeps me anchored to the light
So listen to what I have found when my world ran aground
Grace was still a greater tide
And all that I have left to say to those who've lost their way
Oh, grace can even save a shipwrecked life!

So listen to what I have found when my world ran aground
Grace was still a greater tide
And all that I have left to say to those who've lost their way
Oh, grace can even save a shipwrecked life!

Grace can even save a shipwrecked life!
