“Alive Again”—Then Sings My Soul Saturdays

Then Sings My Soul Saturday Join Amy and friends for more inspirational music.

I can’t always hear what God is saying, but I know He’s always telling me something important.

I can’t always see what God is doing, but I know He’s always doing something good.

This song reminds me of that:
God breaks through my deafness.
He shatters my blindness.

I hear.
I see.
I breathe deeply.
Alive. Because of Him.

 

Alive Again
Matt Maher
LYRICS

I woke up in darkness
Surrounded by silence
Oh where, oh where have I gone?
I woke to reality losing its grip on me
Oh where, where have I gone?
'Cause I can see the light
Before I see the sunrise

CHORUS
You called and You shouted
Broke through my deafness
Now I'm breathing in and breathing out
I'm alive again
You shattered my darkness
Washed away my blindness
Now I'm breathing in and breathing out
I'm alive again

Late have I loved You
You waited for me, I searched for You
What took me so long?
I was looking outside
As if Love would ever want to hide
I'm finding I was wrong
'Cause I feel the wind
Before it hits my skin

CHORUS

'Cause I want You,
Yes I want You I need You and I'll do
Whatever I have to just to get through
'Cause I love You,
Yeah I love You

CHORUS

It surely would feel great to feel alive again. Sometimes I wish I could understand right away what it is that God is telling me.

Hi Lisa,

I read the lyrics before I listened, which is what I always do if its a song I haven't heard before...I don't want to be moved by the melody, but by the words that are being spoken. This one is so wonderful. I can remember a time years ago that I felt exactly this way. But then God, in His wonderful, gentle way, spoke, shook, prodded and sweetly pushed me back into the light so I could see clearly again. I can still feel that way at times, but now I know where to go, as He is always there, waiting and ready to receive me back into His arms.

Thanks for sharing...this was so good.

God bless,
Mary

Blessings Lisa...ALIVE again!!! WOW! Powerful message! Your words strike a cord in me. I never had heard this song before but the voice sounded so familiar. So (I cheated) and went to see who it was...Matt Maher...hmmmmm... missed it in the opening, I was reading the lyrics. It amazes me that though we each come from different places, we can recall a time like this...your own words brought so much meaning as I listened and watched this video. I had to watch it again. Love the scenes chosen.

So thankful that HE comes in and shatters our darkness with His light...love this powerful ending:

"'Cause I want You,
Yes I want You I need You and I'll do
Whatever I have to just to get through
'Cause I love You,"

ohhhh yeah! ALIVE AGAIN! I pray since you selected this song & message that the LORD GOD ALMIGHTY is ALIVE to you & in you as "hear, see and breathe deeply because of Him" May His Spirit meet you and lead you through...

Lisa, what a great quote. If I'd seen this last week, it would've been part of my favorite quotes. And the song, I like very well -- thanks for posting the video. Isn't technology wonderful?

Thanks for sharing this. I'd never heard it before. Yes, because of Him, I'm alive!

Oops--I didn't realize the artist's name wasn't showing. I'll add it; it's Matt Maher.

Glad you all enjoyed it too. Yes, our very life is a gift--both physical and spiritual life!
