Come Alive (Dry Bones) – Lauren Daigle

When I first heard this song I didn’t really like it. All I could hear was the chorus “As we call out to dry bones, come alive, come alive”. The lyrics and emphasis didn’t resonate with me and it seemed showy so I put up my bias filters whenever the song would play and I categorized it as ‘meh’.

It wasn’t until months later as I drove down the road listening to the song with my ‘bias filters’ off ┬ádid I hear beyond the chorus and realize what the lyrics were saying. It’s now a favorite song.

“Through the eyes of men it seems there is so much we have lost,
as we look down the road where all the prodigals have walked…”

“We know there is more to come,
that we may not yet see…”

“So with the faith you’ve given us
we”ll step into the valley unafraid…”

As we call out to dry bones,
Come alive…
As we call out to dead hearts,
Come alive!

“By your spirit breath upon them
show the world you alone can save,
you alone can save.”
