This is not exactly “news,” but I tried finding the lyrics online to no avail.  The Gary McSpadden website contact e-mails bounce back.

Can anyone supply the lyrics to Gary McSpadden’s old song (1981) “It Was Enough”?  I was sharing a few lines from the song today with a friend in conversation about how so many people in the church today feel “entitled” or that they should have certain “rights” or “privileges” because they have been going to church so long.  Whatever happened to the spirit of “It was enough that He died for me”?  I would love to have all the lyrics to meditate on that “attitude of gratitude.”

Thanks for anyone out there who takes the time and can help me out.

I can get it to you eventually if someone doesn’t first. However, the song is really more about seeing imperfections, struggling with them and how God’s grace is enough.

IT WAS ENOUGH

                      LORD I SEE SO MUCH IN ME
                      THAT I JUST CAN’T GET RIGHT
                      THINGS THAT WEIGH ME DOWN EACH DAY
                      AND STEAL MY SLEEP AT NIGHT
                      IN YOUR WORD I READ ABOUT
                      A PEACE I WISH I FELT
                      BUT HOW CAN YOU FORGIVE ME WHEN
                      I CAN’T FORGIVE MYSELF

                      (CHORUS)
                      IT WAS ENOUGH THE BLOOD THAT YOU SHED
                      IT WAS ENOUGH THAT YOU ROSE FROM THE DEAD
                      IT WAS ENOUGH TO SET ME FREE
                      IT WAS ENOUGH THAT YOU DIED FOR ME

                      HE SAID CHILD YOU KNOW IT HURTS ME SO
                      TO SEE YOU STRUGGLE ON
                      STRIVING TO BE GOOD ENOUGH
                      TIL ALL YOUR STRENGTH IS GONE
                      WORN OUT BY THE FEAR THAT YOU’LL
                      GO JUST ONE SIN TOO FAR
                      DON’T YOU KNOW THAT ONLY I
                      COULD MAKE YOU WHAT YOU ARE

                      IT WAS ENOUGH THE BLOOD THAT I SHED
                      IT WAS ENOUGH THAT I ROSE FROM THE DEAD
                      IT WAS ENOUGH TO SET YOU FREE
                      IT WAS ENOUGH

                      IT WAS ENOUGH THE LIFE THAT I GAVE
                      IT WAS ENOUGH THAT I ROSE FROM THE GRAVE
                      IT WAS ENOUGH NOTHING MORE YOU COULD DO
                      IT WAS ENOUGH THAT I DIED FOR YOU
