    Lifegiving Lyrics: Day By Day

    Hey y’all,

    I’m sitting here on a rainy Saturday morning with freshly baked banana chocolate chip muffins, a good cup of coffee and good tunes playing, and I thought to myself, some lyrics are too good to not share. So I’ve decided to post lyrics of some of my favorite tunes every once in a while.

    Music is powerful and beautiful. So often we listen to music and even know the words but don’t sit on what we are listening to. It’s so easy to fill our minds and hearts with junk because the tune is catchy, or simply because it’s on the radio all the time. We also seem to not only glaze over the gunk in music we listen to but the beauty as well. I have found myself singing worship songs on Sunday morning and not allowing the words to sink in, to really dwell on if I believe what I’m singing, to engage my heart in worship not just fill my lips with empty praise.

    All this to say, I want to share lyrics of songs and hymns that have impacted me, not just because I enjoy the music or sang it in church but because I have dwelled on the words, and the truth behind them.

    I’m not one to be marked by my great taste in music (nor musical abilities because I have none), so sharing a Spotify playlist that I’ve created for y’all would be a waste of time for the both of us. But these songs I shall share, are so beautifully written, dripping with truth and life.

    So here it is the song that hit me this morning.

    Day By Day 

    Citizens and Saints

    Even when I’m at my worst
    I am still of righteous birth
    Covered by a saving grace
    Past, present, future debt erased
    My heart is changing day by day

    When I run like wild fire
    I am still a ransomed child
    Bought with blood spilt on a tree
    Sin, death, they have no hold on me
    My will is changing day by day

    I am not who I was, now I am who I am
    A sinner saved, a stumbling saint
    Still I’m never alone, He’s alive in my bones
    The ghost of God sanctifies

    What I once desired for
    Is not what I desire more
    Heart of stone turned into flesh
    Love, joy, peace taking over the mess
    It’s all I’m wanting day by day

    No, I’m not who I was, now I am who I am
    A sinner saved, a stumbling saint
    Still I’m never alone, He’s alive in my bones
    The ghost of God sanctifies

    I don’t always believe that I’m even a saint
    Justified with new life
    But I’m never the same when I remember the gift
    Of His grace builds my faith

    No, I’m not who I was, now I am who I am
    A sinner saved, a stumbling saint
    I’m not ever alone, He’s alive in my soul
    The ghost of God sanctifies
