Grace is an unreleased song by Prince recorded in 2015 at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The song was mentioned by Michael B. Nelson in an article by Laura Tiebert, published in 2019, about Nelson's work with Prince. Prince send the track with Pangaea by email to Nelson on 22 June 2015 and asked him to add orchestral and horn overdubs.

In “Grace”, Nelson says Prince sings of being on a mountaintop with the wind rushing by. Looking back on his life, Prince sings, he is astonished. Memories rush by like the wind. As they pass, the memories fall behind him, and all that remains is grace.

The track is not related to the Prince-written track of the same name, Grace, recorded by The Time. See Grace for details of that track.
