Matt Maher - "Because He Lives" (Behind the Song)

What started out as a passing thought to merge a classic Gaither title with a fresh new treatment has turned into a worship song that is lighting up a generation!

Matt Maher talks to us about how his version of "Because He Lives" came to be.

Matt noted, "Everything we do as Christians comes because of the resurrection. Because Jesus lives we therefore have life.
This song is a continuation of the ministry of unifying the Church.
We're alive because He lives."

Because He Lives lyrics:

I believe in the Son
I believe in the risen One
I believe I overcome
By the power of His blood

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

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
