Lyrics: God’s Not Dead and not roaring like a lion

8 Comments


I posted, previously, my concerns over the song God’s not dead and the roaring like a lion part. It’s a great song without the roaring, and so, for the sake of the kids, I modified the lyrics to remove the Satan imagery and replaced it with an omnipresent God, which He is….

God’s Not Dead by the Newsboys (modified lyrics)

Let love explode And bring the dead to life A love so bold To see a revolution somehow
Let love explode And bring the dead to life A love so bold To bring a revolution somehow
Now I’m lost in your freedom And this world I’ll overcome

My God’s not dead He’s surely alive He’s living on the inside, living on the outside
My God’s not dead He’s surely alive He’s living on the inside, living on the outside
He’s living He’s living He’s living on the inside

Let hope arise And make the darkness hide My faith is dead I need a resurrection somehow
Now.. Now I’m lost in your freedom Now.. And this world I’ll overcome

My God’s not dead He’s surely alive He’s living on the inside, living on the outside
My God’s not dead He’s surely alive He’s living on the inside, living on the outside
He’s living He’s living He’s living on the inside
He’s living on the inside

Let Heaven roar And fire fall Come shake the ground With the sound of revival
Let Heaven roar And fire fall Come shake the ground With the sound of revival
Let Heaven roar And fire fall Come shake the ground With the sound of revival
Let Heaven roar And fire fall Come shake the ground With the sound of revival…

My God’s not dead He’s surely alive He’s living on the inside, living on the outside
My God’s not dead He’s surely alive He’s living on the inside, living on the outside
My God’s not dead He’s surely alive He’s living on the inside, living on the outside
My God’s not dead He’s surely alive He’s living on the inside, living on the outside…
He’s living He’s living He’s living on the inside…
He’s living on the outside

Using this arrangement I feel confident that we can enjoy the Newsboys and the catchy song without losing a beat..

I'm a musician and worship leader, intent on following wherever God leads and directs me, with His leading's in the Spirit and others bonking me on the head ( hopefully not much of the latter). My life experiences are in blue collar and white collar (engineering) employment, political office, lay ministries, national competition in track and cross country and most importantly marriage and raising a family. God has given me a unique set of skills and character to serve Him and a passion for doing it.

  1. I like your version much better buddy!

    • I actually, took the time to tell them what I did. They now have an explanation up claiming Hosea 11:10 but not in context with the whole prophecy.

      Hey, keep those fires east of you and away from the wifey and baby. You’re a politician now, you can do that ;-)

      • When you say you took the time to tell them. Do you mean the Newsboys? I am working the best I can and trying to get back to the blog world. I think it will happen. My wife and son are doing well now. Stephanie got a little shook up when Junior got circumcised yesterday. I wrote a blog about that situation and the war on circumcision. I have learned so much in the last days about that topic it has boggled my mind.

        • Yep, I went to the website and left a comment on the article.

          Where’d you have Junior circumcised? I’m not surprised she was shook. Anytime when our little ones get cut, poked, scraped with blood showing gets to you for a while. As he grows, you’ll get more parenting instinct to go with that protect mode.

          • We wanted to go with a moyle originally but could not afford it. I know this pediatrician from the local Tea Party that could do circumcision so we made an appointment with him. He is a nice guy but he is still a doctor. The doctor and I can have wonderful intelligent conversations that remain civil but we do not agree with each other on everything. Especially on topics such as vaccines. However we still respect each other at the end of the day. He plans to retire once Obamacare goes into full effect. He hates limited health care. I am quite tickled to hear you let the newsboys know. Thank you so much for standing up for the truth. Let me know if you get a response back from them about it.

  2. Still need to reference Jesus in the song somewhere, in my opinion!
