Matt Maher, “Because He Lives (Amen)”

Matt Maher has released the lyric video for “Because He Lives (Amen),” an anthemic song of declaration in the saving power of Christ. A reworking of the traditional hymn, there is something special about Because He Lives (Amen). Whether it’s the moving instrumentation work, or the simple yet powerful declaration of “Amen”–sung as AH-men, not the traditional AY-men– that makes it particularly moving and effective. The fact that it’s been the most-added song at Christian AC for the past two weeks, I think, is proof of the quality of this track. It may very well be Maher’s latest Top 10 hit.

Matt Maher

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
