Alive And Breathing by Matt Maher and Friends with Sunday School Instruments

This seems to be a riff on Jimmy Fallon’s ‘kindergarten instruments’ segment, where Matt Maher and friends sing Alive And Breathing on what are described as Sunday School instruments.
The definition a ‘Sunday School instrument’ seems ever-so slightly stretched, but it’s definitely an acoustic sound, so you get an idea of how the song stands on its own merits.

Because He Lives by Matt Maher Live

Because He Lives is a song sung by Matt Maher.
This video is composed from a compilation of live renditions from Maher.
It seems to borrow from the Gaither song, and because the lyrics are more general works as a a corporate song.

Just As I Am by Matt Maher Acoustic

Matt Maher sings and plays his song Just As I Am as one of a series of renditions of his songs at the Steinway Factory.

The lyrics:

In shackles and chains
I came to your door
And fell on the floor
Of mercy
Guilty I stood, guilty I was
I couldn’t hide my shame

Just as I am
Just as I am
Jesus you welcomed me
You took me in
I’ll never be the same again
My life held in your hands
Just as I am

You saved a place
Amazing grace
You came all the way
To meet me

Carried me home
With a ring and a robe
Threw your loving arms around me

Just as I am
Just as I am
Jesus you welcomed me
You took me in
I’ll never be the same again
My life held in your hands

Just as I am
Without one plea
But that your blood was shed for me
And that you bid me come to thee
Oh Lamb of God I come, I come

Just as I am
Without one plea
But that your blood was shed for me
And that you bid me come to thee
Oh Lamb of God I come, I come

Just as I am
Just as I am
Jesus you welcomed me
You took me in
I’ll never be the same again
My life held in your hands

Just as I am
Just as I am
Jesus you welcomed me
You took me in
I will never be the same again
My life held in your hands

Oh my life is held in your hands
Just as I am
Just as I am

Not the hymn, Just As I Am is a new song from Matt Maher and friends.

The lyrics:

In shackles and chains
I came to your door
And fell on the floor
Of mercy

Guilty I stood
Guilty I was

Jesus you welcomed me
You took me in I’ll never be
The same again

Without one plea
But that your blood was shed for me
And that you bid me come to thee
Oh Lamb of God I come, I come

You took me in
I will never be the same again
My life held in your hands
Oh my life is held in your hands
Just as I am
Just as I am
