11 487 Paint Me Away. You are the Artist, paint away my past. I need you to paint me away. At Your feet is where I find grace. I give my heart. This is the day. I need You to paint me away. Brushstrokes remind me of how your mercies flow. Paint my canvas white like winter snow. The easel that showcased all my tainted past now shows the artwork that will always last. I need you to paint me away. At Your feet is where I find grace. I give my heart. This is the day. I need You to paint me away. –Paint Me Away, Nick Fry
