Amy Grant: Don’t try so hard

Amy Grant singing her beautiful song Don’t Try So Hard, featuring James Taylor.

The lyrics:

Another Monday comes and I just wanna breathe
Cause it’s a long, long week for someone wired to please
I keep ‘taking my aim’, ‘pushing it higher’
Wanna ‘shine bright’, ‘even brighter now’
Wish I would tell myself

Don’t try so hard
God gives you grace and you can’t earn it
Don’t think that you’re not worth it
Because you are
He gave you His love and He’s not leaving
Gave you His Son so you’d believe it
You’re lovely even with your scars
Don’t try so hard  

Do you remember how the Summers felt when we were kids
Oh we didn’t think much about it, we just lived
Taking our time, beautiful leisure
When did we start trying to measure up
And all this time, love has been trying to tell us

Don’t try so hard
God gives you grace and you can’t earn it
Don’t think that you’re not worth it
Because you are
He gave you His love and He’s not leaving
Gave you His Son so you’d believe it
You’re lovely even with your scars
Don’t try so hard
