Included in his most recent album, “Saints and Sinners,” “Because he lives” is indeed a powerful anthem/march celebrating the Resurrection.
If you’re not familiar with Matt Maher’s music, well, you should be. Chances are you saw him playing at the Rally for Youth and Seminarians in Yonkers, New York, when Pope Benedict XIV visited the US in 2008. Or, maybe you bumped into a video of his performance at World Youth Day 2013, in Rio de Janeiro, in front of 4 million people (including Pope Francis).
But if you haven’t seen him (and if you’ve missed his seven solo albums as well) — or you, know, even if you are a longtime fan — make sure you turn up the volume on this beautiful live rendition of his song “Because He Lives,” included in his seventh studio album, Saints and Sinners.

"Since you are here...
…we have a small favor to ask. Aleteia’s readership continues to grow rapidly, however advertising revenues across all media are falling fast. You may have noticed that many websites are putting up paywalls in order to sustain their journalism. For us, however, this is not an option as our apostolic mission is to encourage and inspire Christian life for as many Catholics as possible. We would also like to reduce the number of ads on the site, but it is simply not possible unless we generate income in other ways. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Aleteia’s journalism takes a lot of hard work and money to produce. We will continue to serve you because it is our mission, but please consider making a contribution to support our work and help us secure our future."
