Hillsong Young & Free are making their mark in the multi-music group branches of Hillsong Church (and the Christian music industry for that matter) with their ultra electro-pop tunes catering to, well, the young and free. Recently they’ve introduced new songs from their This is Living album that continues their head-banging dance songs, but what struck my chord was this acoustic version of “This is Living.” Melodie brings it to a completely gentle ballad that gives the same impact as its upbeat alternative.
Waking up knowing there’s a reason
All my dreams come alive
Life is for living with You
I’ve made my decision
You lift me up, fill my eyes with wonder
Forever young in Your love
This freedom’s untainted with You
No moment is wasted
The takeaway? A relationship with Christ and loving our God who loves you more in a moment than anyone could in a lifetime is the best type of living. There’s nothing like it!
“You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it.”
