Music Wednesday – Death of Me

I really love this song by the new band Royal Tailor about how, when we die to ourselves, redemption and transformation is found. We are no longer our own, we have died…but buried with Him, He makes us new.

(I’m hoping they win the Dove award for Best New Artist next week at the Dove Awards.)

This is the death of me, oh
The death of me, oh
The death of me, oh
The death of me, oh

Lost, I was wandering around
Hoping I could find a place
I’d be more than just a face in the crowd
I heard one day You came
Turned the lost into the saved
Now You’re showing me the way
All along I’ve been believing I was living

(Chorus)
But now that I’m free I finally see
Living’s worth dying for
Buried with You
You’re making me new
The old me’s dead and gone
This is the death of me, oh
The death of me, oh
The death of me, oh
The death of me, oh

Your words were just ink on a page
Always so hard to believe
Until You revealed to me that
Your love stepped into the world
Now my past has been erased
‘Cause You saved me with Your grace, Your grace
All along I’ve been believing I was living

No more holding on to all my secrets
No more living with these broken pieces
Now my life’s been changed
Today is a new day
And I’ll never be the same
No, no, no
