Citizens - Made Alive

[youtube=http://youtu.be/yKKzBN7ufXs]Genre: Indie Rock, Pop, Worship

Citizens are a worship band from Mars Hill Church in Seattle. This song, Made Alive is taken from their forthcoming self-titled album, which will be released on March the 12th. Mars Hill Music have shared this song from the new album 'Citizens' along with the news that they are partnering with Tooth and Nail Records / BEC Recordings.

Made Alive sees Citizens go down a slightly more 'pop rock' path than their 2012 release Already / Not Yet, with a nice loud synth/keyboard intro + chorus. It still has all the other elements that I'd expect of Citizens though - the shout out loud chorus is still there backed by the joyous gang vocals (which I secretly wish I could have been a part of). A brilliant release from one of my favourite worship bands, and I'm certain that by the end of the weekend you'll be dancing around the room with this song on repeat, just as I too plan to start doing right now.

All rights belong to Citizens.

Lyrics:

(Verse 1) I once was dead in sin Alone and hopeless, A child of wrath I walked Condemned in darkness,

But Your mercy brought new life And in Your love and kindness, Raised me up with Christ And made me righteous.

(Chorus) You have bought me back With the riches of, Your amazing grace And relentless love. I'm made alive forever, With You, life forever By Your grace I'm saved, By Your grace I'm saved.

(Verse 2) Lord, You are the light, That broke the darkness. You satisfy my soul, When I am heartless.

If ever I forget My true identity, Show me who I am, And help me to believe.

(Chorus)

(Bridge) My sin has been erased, I'll never be the same. My sin has been erased, I'll never be the same.

(Chorus) x2
