“His Grace is Enough” is a Christian pop worship song in E major. This one’s not meant for use within the Mass at all, but during prayer sessions or praise and worship.
Lyrics by: Lionel Valdellon and Yna Suello. Based on Exodus 14:13-14 and 2 Cor 12:9.

Story Behind the Song:
This song was a work-in-progress for 2 years. Via a collaboration with fellow BukasPalad Message Board member Yna Suello, I got the rough draft of the lyrics back in 2008 then began to craft lyrics and music for it. it was 90% finished by June 2008. All I lacked was a melody or chords for the third verse (or the bridge). But then, I forgot all about it.
Recently looking for material to record for this blog, I came upon the unfinished song and decided to complete it in September 2010. This is the result. (Forgive the airplane sounds and the gardener going crazy in the end of the video — I recorded this in the park near my office.)
Also, the last I heard, Yna Suello is now an aspirant in the Congregation Dominican Sisters of St. Joseph in Bulacan, Philippines. Pray for vocations and specifically for her vocation!
The lyrics are based on Exodus 14:13-14 and 2 Corinthians 12:9.
The melody and tempo of the song make it a good pop worship song. The chorus is a bit syncopated however so it may prove to be a challenge for people to follow along right away. Still, never underestimate the power of the Holy Spirit!
