How Can It Be – Lauren Daigle

Today’s strong worship song is How Can It Be by Lauren Daigle.  Lauren is gifted with a beautiful and strong voice. The lyrics of How Can It Be are equally strong. Sin, shame, and guilt are clearly admitted and confessed to God. As our accuser and adversary Satan would have us to believe that there is no forgiveness for sinners and that we dare not lift our hands to worship God. God’s grace in Christ Jesus, however reaches us and reveals to us that we are forgiven. Redeemed hands are clean hands in God’s sight.  A forgiven sinner has every reason to lift up their hands and worship the Holy One.

Scriptural references include Psalm 78:41, Psalm 79:18, Hebrews 7:25, Psalm 107:14, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Ephesians 2:8-9, John 16:33, John 10:15, 1 Corinthians 15:22, and 1 John 2:2.

How Can It Be 

I am guilty
Ashamed of what I’ve done
What I’ve become
These hands are dirty
I dare not lift them up
To the Holy One

You plead my cause,
You right my wrongs
You break my chains
You overcome
You gave Your life
To give me mine
You say that I am free
How can it be, Yeah
How can it be

I’ve been hiding
Afraid I’d let you down
Inside I’d doubt
That You could love me
But in Your eyes
There’s only Grace now

You plead my cause
You right my wrongs
You break my chains
You overcome
You gave Your life
To give me mine
You say that I am free
How can it be, Yeah
How can it be, Oh

Though I fall
You can make me new
From this death
I will rise with You
Oh the Grace
Reaching out for me, Yeah
How can it be
How can it be

You plead my cause
You right my wrongs
You break my chains
You overcome
You gave Your life
To give me mine
And You say that I am free, Oh

You plead my cause
You right my wrongs
You break my chains
You overcome
You gave Your life
To give me mine
And You say that I am free
How can it be, Yeah
How can it be, Oh
