Grace at Christmas **Updated

Grace, she takes the blame
She covers the shame
Removes the stain
It could be her name

Grace, it's a name for a girl
It's also a thought that changed the world
And when she walks on the street
You can hear the strings
Grace finds goodness in everything

Grace, she's got the walk
Not on a ramp or on chalk
She's got the time to talk
She travels outside of karma, karma
She travels outside of karma

When she goes to work
You can hear the strings
Grace finds beauty in everything
Grace, she carries a world on her hips
No champagne flute for her lips
No twirls or skips between her fingertips
She carries a pearl in perfect condition

What once was hurt, what once was friction
What left a mark no longer stains
Because Grace makes beauty out of ugly things
Grace finds beauty in everything
Grace finds goodness in everything
-Grace, written by Bono, emphasis mine

**Here's the song, if you've never heard it- Ah, the title has a double-meaning...Grace (my baby girl) at Christmas, and Grace (Given to us) at Christmas. Amen.

Love the name too. My little girl's middle name is Grace. It was almost her first, but I made a a last second change:)

Thanks for the reminder of the grace given to us...

Cute. And dude, I knew that was U2 before I got to the end. I guess that makes me a fan...
