MercyMe featuring John Reuben, “Grace Got You”

Contemporary Christian supergroup MercyMe has released easygoing chill track “Grace Got You” to Christian AC. Featuring Christian rapper John Reuben, “Grace Got You” has quite the pedigree, having been written by hitmakers Benjamin Glover and David Arthur Garcia with the band’s Bart Marshall Millard, rapper Reuben, and Solomon Olds, formerly of Family Force 5. Garcia and Glover have written for Mandisa before, so I’m familiar with this sonic landscape, and I LOVE IT. The encouraging message of the song will definitely resonate with many people, and I’m excited to see how this song will perform, especially in the wake of the brilliant yet criminally underappreciated “Happy Dance.”

GRACE GOT YOU Lyrics
MercyMe

Have you ever met those who
Keep humming when the song’s through?
It’s like they’re living life to a whole different tune
And have you ever met those that
Keep hoping when it’s hopeless
It’s like they figured out what the rest haven’t yet
The second when you realize
When you have inside
It’s only just a matter of time ’til you

Sing, so the back row hears you
Glide, ’cause walking just won’t do
Dance, you don’t have to know how to
Ever since, ever since grace got you
Laugh, ’til your whole side’s hurting
Smile like you just got away with something
Why? ‘Cause you just got away with something
Ever since, ever since grace got you

So when you’re standing in the rain again
You might as well be dancing
Why? ‘Cause there ain’t no storm that can change how this ends

So next time when you feel blue
Don’t let that smile leave you
Why? ‘Cause you have every reason just to

Sing, so the back row hears you
Glide, ’cause walking just won’t do
Dance, you don’t have to know how to
Ever since, ever since grace got you
Laugh, ’til your whole side’s hurting
Smile like you just got away with something
Why? ‘Cause you just got away with something
Ever since, ever since grace got you
Ever since, ever since grace got you
Grace got you

Got away with something, bubbling inside of you
Spilling over ’cause your life is full, how incredible
Undeniable, monumental like the Eiffel
Uncontrollable, let the joy flow through, ha ha
Giddy oh, but pretty, pretty please
Let me see your hands in the air with you out your seats
Warm it up, let go, shout it out, celebrate
When you can’t articulate just say Amazing Grace
The second when you realize
When you have inside
It’s only just a matter of (only just a matter of)
It’s only just a matter of time ’til you

Sing, so the back row hears you
Glide, ’cause walking just won’t do
Dance, you don’t have to know how to
Ever since, ever since grace got you
Laugh, ’til your whole side’s hurting
Smile like you just got away with something
Why? ‘Cause you just got away with something
Ever since, ever since grace got you
Yeah yea yea yea yea
Ever since, ever since grace got you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Grace got you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Ever since, ever since Grace got you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Grace got you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Grace got you
