So much pressure from my peers
To think and act as they
Just leave the wife who doesn't care
It's dumb you fool to stay

They think it ease to leave the one
Who doesn't care a bit
Who doesn't like me bein round
Much less of where I sit

"Don't give me flowers" she told me
Can't touch her arm or head
Can't tell her that I still love her
It's lonely here, I dread

But one thing that I have they don't
One thing I don't deserve
His loving grace to see me through
And help me learn to serve

His grace is overwhelming
My sin is overcome
By love uncomprehendable
I rest here, mercies son

I'm here because He loves me
And painful is my stay
Yet painful more would be my lot
If I would run away

Away from stress and sorrow
Away from hardship's road
Away from growing closer
To the One who bears my load

Come to me all you who thirst
Who are now weighed down low
And I will give you peaceful rest
My grace will help you grow

How much I'd miss if I ran
Away from pain's alarms
"less I was running straight into
Grace in my Saviour's arms

It's hard to want to stay here
Where pains and sorrows dwell
But God has given me His grace
And grace I will know well

Let patience have it's perfect work
That you may be complete
Mature and lacking nothing
Like love, grace is so sweet

I stay here not from pressure
From those I want to please
But for the love and grace of God
That brings me to my knees
