Because He Lives by Matt Maher & Co – Sunday Songs

Leave a comment

Matt Maher and a cast of thousands have a song called Because He Lives, which is not the same as the song by the Gaithers, but still manages to borrow a few lines from the Gaither lyrics, so they’re credited along with five others as composers of this.
For all the credited composers it is a likeable song because it’s not long, makes its point and makes it well.
This is a lyric video.

The lyrics:
I believe in the Son
I believe in the risen One
I believe I overcome
By the power of His blood
Chorus 1.
Amen, amen
I’m alive, I’m alive
Because He lives
Amen, amen
Let my song join the One that never ends
Because He lives
I was dead in the grave
I was covered in sin and shame
I heard mercy call my name
He rolled the stone away
Chorus 2.
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow
Because He lives, every fear is gone
I know He holds my life, my future, in His hands
