Song of The Week || Alive (MARY MAGDELINE)


When I listened to this beautiful song, it just touched my heart. A King, who would do anything and went through so much, just to win the hearts of His people… to win the hearts of sinners. Aside from that, I felt  ashamed. Me and my church mates had another dance practice for our church anniversary today. I’m not a dancer. I could barely make a move without feeling awkward and stiff.But I had to do it for the Lord, to make Him proud, to glorify Him. Instead, I felt like a failure, looking down on myself without even trying. I judged myself to quickly. I was self-conscious about my body and the way I dance. I found out that my friends thought of me differently, they thought I was pretty… then how come I still feel this way?

That’s when I noticed, that I think about myself too much- it’s not about me though, it’s about God.

Lyrics:

Who but You
Could breathe and leave a trail of galaxies
And dream of me?
What kind of Love
Is writing my story until the end
With Mercy’s pen?
Only You
What kind of king
Would choose to wear a crown that bleeds and scars
To win my heart?
What kind of Love
Tells me I’m the reason He can’t stay
Inside the grave?
You. Is it You?
Standing here before my eyes
Every part of my heart cries

(Chorus)
Alive! Alive!
Look what Mercy’s overcome
Death has lost and Love has won
Alive! Alive! Hallelujah, Risen Lord
The only One I fall before
I am His because He is alive.

Who could speak
And send the demons back from where they came
With just one Name?
What other heart
Would let itself be broken every time until He healed mine?
You. Only You
Could turn my darkness into dawn
Running right into Your arms

Chorus

Emmanuel, the promised King
The baby who made angels sing
Son of Man who walked with us
Healing, breathing in our dust
The author of all history
The answer to all mysteries
The Lamb of God who rolled away
The stone in front of every grave

Alive! Alive! Look what Mercy’s overcome
Death has lost and Love has won
Alive! I am His because He is alive.
Alive!
