Every time I listen to Mumford and Son’s Sigh No More there are phrases that grip me.
One of them is ‘That’s exactly how this grace thing works’…
It is found in the song Roll Away Your Stone.
You told me that I would find a home
Within the fragile substance of my soul
And I have filled this void with things unreal
And all the while my character it steals
And darkness is a harsh term don’t you think
And yet it dominates the things I see
It seems that all my bridges have been burned
But you say ‘That’s exactly how this grace thing works’
It’s not the long walk home that will change this heart
But the welcome I receive with every start
