He Lives in Me

You have been such good boys and girls that I decided to reward you with a toe tapping, biblical, bluegrass song. The lyrics say it all – “Christ lives in me”. The apostle Paul writes, “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.” (Galatians 2:20). Read the lyrics below and then listen some moving music.

Oh I’m just not myself, although I look the same
The portrait that I used to be is a different frame.
I feel this sudden strength but I’m as helpless as a child
And you may see me grinnin’ like it’s goin’ out of style.

The things I used to treasure just get in the way
The people I once hated, I love them more each day.
The frown I’m used to wearin’ has been turned upside down
Since Jesus came into my heart and turned my life around.

He lives in me (He lives in me) – He lives in me (He lives in me);
He bought me with a price: now I no longer am my own – My life is His kingdom, my heart is his throne.
He lives in me (He lives in me) – He lives in me (He lives in me);
The King of all heaven and earth is living in me!

Now even when I’m tempted good and evil are at war
The battle’s getting hotter than it’s ever been before.
Oh, I know where my strength lies I can’t do it on my own
Then I get reinforcements ’cause I’m never left alone.

He lives in me (He lives in me) – He lives in me (He lives in me);
He bought me with a price: now I no longer am my own
My life is His kingdom, my heart is his throne.
He lives in me (He lives in me) – He lives in me (He lives in me);
The King of all heaven and earth is living in me!
