I haven’t done this in the past, but the message in this song is found in the words it declares. So, consider this your opportunity to sing along with Zahriya Zachary as she proclaims: He brought me “Back to Life.”
CHORUS: No longer I who live, but Christ in me For I’ve been born again, my heart is free The hope of heaven before me, the grave behind Hallelujah You brought me back to life
VERSE 1: I won’t forget the moment I heard You call my name Out of the grip of darkness Into the light of grace Just like Lazarus Oh You brought me back to life
VERSE 2: Where there was dead religion Now there is living faith All of my hope and freedom Are found in Jesus’ name Just like Lazarus Oh You brought me back to life
VERSE 3: When something says I am guilty I’ll point to the price You paid When something says I’m not worthy I’ll point to that empty grave Just like Lazarus Oh You brought me back to life
VERSE 4: How can I begin to thank You For all that You’ve done for me Jesus to fully praise You It will take all eternity Just like Lazarus Oh You brought me back to life
TAG: Oh You brought me back to life
SPONTANEOUS CHORUS: The enemy thought he had me But Jesus said you are Mine.
It’s all there. Every word of it. If you’re in it with me, doing it, living it, dancing in it, praying through it, rejoicing in it … your Savior smiles at you. He declares you His special possession. And that’s why He took that place on the cross for you and me. To breathe new life into our nostrils. To give us a hope that we never deserved. To bring us back to the Father. To give us reason to live.
Go on, Sister … SING! You have every reason to and so do I.
I love you to Heaven and Back, Girlfriend ~~
