Alive

Album: When The Light Comes (2019)
  • I was dead in my transgressions
    Wandering in sin
    I went searching for redemption
    Down a road that had no end
    I was walking through the fire
    I was living on the run
    With my flesh lost in desire
    I was drowning in the flood

    But God, rich in mercy
    You came to save me
    Now I'm alive
    But God, strong and mighty
    You reached down for me
    So I could rise
    Now I'm alive

    I am far from being perfect
    There are days that I regret
    On this battlefield I struggle
    With the lies that I have lived
    I have fallen short of glory
    I can't make it on my own
    If You kept record of my past
    I'd be sinking like a stone

    But God, rich in mercy
    You came to save me
    Now I'm alive
    But God, strong and mighty
    You reached down for me
    So I could rise

    Now I'm breathing in, breathing out
    I was in the grave, but God you called me out
    Now I'm breathing in, breathing out
    I was in the grave, but God you called me out

    But God, rich in mercy
    You came to save me
    Now I'm alive
    My God, strong and mighty
    You reached down for me
    So I could rise

    Now I'm breathing in, breathing out
    I was in the grave, but God you called me out
    Now I'm breathing in, breathing out
    I was in the grave, but God you called me out
    Now I'm alive
