“ALIVE AND BREATHING”:  JOY, HOPE, AND PRAISE THE LORD

Happy Birthday today to my beloved spouse, to whom I dedicate the song, Alive and Breathing” (recorded by Matt Maher and written by Elle Limebear & Matt Maher).

No matter your age, if you’re still alive and breathing, then you can know joy and hope and praise the Lord! May you have many more days to know joy and hope and many more days to praise the Lord!

ALIVE AND BREATHING

What holds your heart?
What stirs your soul?
What matters come to mind?
The cares you keep,
The thoughts you think;
It’s not all wasted time.
Seek and you will find.

Joy still comes in the morning.
Hope still walks with the hurting.
If you’re still alive and breathing, praise the Lord!
Don’t stop dancing and dreaming.
There’s still Good News worth repeating,
So lift your head and keep singing.
Praise the Lord!

Years roll by;
We wonder why
We lost our way from home.
Our Father finds
The child inside
We had left for growing old.
Awake, awake, awake my soul.

Joy still comes in the morning.
Hope still walks with the hurting.
If you’re still alive and breathing,
Praise the Lord!
Don’t stop dancing and dreaming.
There’s still Good News worth repeating,
So lift your head and keep singing.
Praise the Lord!

Let everything, let everything, Let everything praise the Lord!
In the working, in the waiting
Praise the Lord!
In the blessing, in the breaking
Come on, praise the Lord!
In the dying, the rising
Let it praise the Lord!
Let it praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!

Joy still comes in the morning.
Hope still walks with the hurting.
If you’re still alive and breathing,
Praise the Lord!
Don’t stop dancing and dreaming.
There’s still Good News worth repeating,
So lift your head and keep singing.
Praise the Lord!

Joy still comes in the morning.
Hope still walks with the hurting.
If you’re still alive and breathing,
Praise the Lord!
Don’t stop dancing and dreaming.
There’s still Good News worth repeating,
So lift your head and keep singing.
Praise the Lord!
