Survivor – Lyrical Inspiration

I have added a new addition to this blog, entitled “Lyrical Inspiration.” For me, song lyrics have always had a profound impact on my life. I am often encouraged by a well-written piece as it proclaims truth. So, I am going to share some of the songs that have the greatest impact on my life.

I will try to include one of these posts weekly. Within each post I will include the song name, lyrics, related Bible verse, if applicable, and a link to the song itself.

I hope you enjoy these; but more so, I hope you are encouraged by them.

Now, for the first of these posts…..I have selected to share a piece from one of my favorite artists. The song is “Survivor,” by Zach Williams. He has a very inspirational story as he transitioned from the typical rock star lifestyle of drugs and alcohol to one of redemption through faith in Jesus Christ. The message in the lyrics describes this journey, and his has a powerful effect on my life every time I hear it. I hope you are inspired by this one!

Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. – 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NASB)

Survivor
For so long I carried the weight of my past
Cripple by burdens like stones on my back
I thought I had fallen too far from your grace
But you came and showed me the way
When I was lost soul searching
You were the ground beneath my feet
When I was blind man begging
You were the eyes so I could see
When the smoke was rising up
You were the air that I could breath
You gave me hope you gave me something to believe
Now I’m alive and born again
Rescued from the grip of sin
God your love came crashing in
And pulled me out of the fire
I’m a survivor
Now all I can see are the fields of your grace
Wherever I run your leading the way
You shook the shackles off my feet
I found redemption on my knees
You gave me hope you gave me something to believe
Now I’m alive and born again
Rescued from the grip of sin
God your love came crashing in
And pulled me out of the fire
I’m a survivor
Oh I’m a survivor
You’re my God
You’re my fighter
You make me a survivor
Now I’m alive and born again
Rescued from the grip of sin
God your love came crashing in
And pulled me out of the fire
I’m a survivor
Oh I’m a survivor
You pulled me out of the fire
I’m a survivor
