Artist: Hillsong Young & Free
Words and Music: Joel Davies, Aodhan King
Album: Youth Revival
Release: 2016
Tempo: 130 beats per minute
Key: Cm
Details: Just like the other songs from Hillsong Young & Free, This Is Living is another song that is difficult to figure out chords being an EDM. So I would say that the chord below is not 100% correct but it sounds good or should I say I made it simple to play. You can judge it yourself by playing the chord progression while listening to the song.

Also It would be easier to play if you just do the chords with the feel of the song. Having a 130 bpm tempo, I can say if you just play it and forget about the chord-lyrics alignment. I guess you understand my point of just keep rolling the Ab-Bb-Cm-Fm progression and everything will be fine. Just don’t go away with the tempo.

The entire song has Ab-Bb-Cm-Fm chord progression.

Verse 1
Waking up knowing there’s a reason
All my dreams come alive
Life is for living with You
I’ve made my decision

Verse 2
You lift me up, fill my eyes with wonder
Forever young in Your love
This freedom’s untainted with You
No moment is wasted

Pre-chorus
See the sun now bursting through the clouds
Black and white turns to colour all around
All is new, in the Savior I am found

Chorus
This is living now
This is living now

Verse 3
You lead the way, God, You’re right beside me
In Your love I’m complete
There’s nothing like living with You
This life You created I choose

Pre-chorus
See the sun now bursting through the clouds
Black and white turn to color all around
All is new, in the Savior I am found

Chorus
This is living now
This is living now
You take me higher than I’ve been before
It’s Your perfect love that sees me soar
God, Your freedom is an open door
You are everything I want and more

Verse 4
Maybe I ain’t really know what living is
Is it love if it was am I living it?
Do I live in it? So astounding
Love is an ocean You can drown me
The sweet embrace the lovely taste
I taste and see I’m under Grace
The place to be
It means I don’t ever need an umbrella
I’m cool in the cold and the hot weather
Whether or never I ever understand
I’m a man in the hands of great plans
I stand with faith in a life I never known or touched
It’s still outside my clutch but
I’m like what’s to dream of and what’s to hope in
What’s to die for and live to no end
This is living
The life I’ve been given’s a gift
If I’m gonna live it I’m gonna live it to death!
So what’s to dream of and what’s to hope in
What’s to die for and live to no end
This is living
The life I’ve been given’s a gift
If I’m gonna live it I’m gonna live it to death!

Chorus
This is living now
This is living now
You take me higher than I’ve been before
It’s Your perfect love that sees me soar
God, Your freedom is an open door
You are everything I want and more
