He Lives in Me
by Doyle Lawson



Oh I'm just not myself, although I look the same
The portrait that I used to be is a different frame
I feel this sudden strength but I’m as helpless as a child
And you may see me grinnin’ like it’s goin’ out of style

The things I used to treasure just get in the way
The people I once hated, I love them more each day
The frown I’m used to wearin’ has been turned upside down
Since Jesus came into my heart and turned my life around

Chorus:
He lives in me (He lives in me)
He lives in me (He lives in me)
He bought me with a price: now I no longer am my own
My life is His kingdom, my heart is his throne
He lives in me (He lives in me)
He lives in me (He lives in me)
The King of all heaven and earth is living in me!

Now even when I’m tempted good and evil are at war
The battle's getting hotter than it's ever been before
Oh, I know where my strength lies I can't do it on my own
Then I get reinforcements 'cause I’m never left alone
