There is therefore now no condemnation For those who are in Christ Jesus There is therefore now no condemnation For those who are in Christ Jesus For the law of the Spirit of life Has set you free in Jesus Christ From the law of sin and death For the law of the Spirit of life Has set you free in Jesus Christ From the law of sin and death There is therefore now no condemnation For those who are in Christ Jesus There is therefore now no condemnation For those who are in Christ Jesus
2.
For God has done what the law Weakened by the flesh could not do For God has done what the law Weakened by the flesh could not do By sending his own Son In the likeness of sinful flesh And for sin He condemned sin in the flesh For God has done what the law Weakened by the flesh could not do For God has done what the law Weakened by the flesh could not do By sending his own Son In the likeness of sinful flesh And for sin He condemned sin in the flesh For God has done what the law Weakened by the flesh could not do For God has done what the law Weakened by the flesh could not do
3.
In order that the righteous requirement Of the law might be fulfilled in us In order that the righteous requirement Of the law might be fulfilled in us Who walk not according to the flesh But according to the Spirit Who walk not according to the flesh But according to the Spirit In order that the righteous requirement Of the law might be fulfilled in us In order that the righteous requirement Of the law might be fulfilled in us Who walk not according to the flesh But according to the Spirit Who walk not according to the flesh But according to the Spirit
4.
For those who live according to the flesh Set their minds on the things of the flesh But those who live according to the Spirit Set their minds on the things of the Spirit For to set the mind on the flesh is death But to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace For those who live according to the flesh Set their minds on the things of the flesh But those who live according to the Spirit Set their minds on the things of the Spirit For to set the mind on the flesh is death But to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace
5.
For the mind that is set On the flesh is hostile to God For it does not submit To God's law indeed it cannot For the mind that is set On the flesh is hostile to God For it does not submit To God's law indeed it cannot Those who are in the flesh cannot please God Those who are in the flesh cannot please God Those who are in the flesh Can never please our God Those who are in the flesh cannot please God For the mind that is set On the flesh is hostile to God For it does not submit To God's law indeed it cannot Those who are in the flesh cannot please God Those who are in the flesh cannot please God Those who are in the flesh Can never please our God Those who are in the flesh cannot please God
6.
You however are not in the flesh But in the Spirit If in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ Does not belong to him Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ Does not belong to him You however are not in the flesh But in the Spirit If in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ Does not belong to him Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ Does not belong to him Does not belong to him
7.
Although the body is dead because of sin The Spirit is life because of righteousness Although the body is dead because of sin The Spirit is life because of righteousness But if Christ is in you But if Christ is in you But if Christ is in you But if Christ is in you But if Christ is in you Although the body is dead because of sin But if Christ is in you The Spirit is life because of righteousness But if Christ is in you Although the body is dead because of sin But if Christ is in you The Spirit is life because of righteousness But if Christ is in you, Christ is in you
8.
If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead If the Spirit of him dwells in you If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead Dwells in you He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead He who raised Christ from the dead Will also give life to your mortal bodies Through his Spirit who dwells in you Will also give life to your mortal bodies Through his Spirit who dwells in you

SHEET MUSIC: zachjamesmusic.bandcamp.com/merch/the-spirit-of-life-chord-charts

Born out of a desire to help my church memorize Romans 8:1-11 together one summer, I set the passage to music, aiming for singable, memorable, bite-size tunes, word-for-word from the ESV translation of the Bible. I thought I had something special, so I waited patiently for the opportunity to record them properly and get them out in the world for others to benefit from them.

Several years later, that opportunity came, and I decided if I’m going to do it, I’m going to do it the right way! I didn’t want to be second-guessing myself at every turn or cutting any corners. I wanted to let my hair down, be myself, and have the most fun possible. I wanted it to be a piece of art that, as the artist, I could be deeply proud of.

So while this project is certainly “useable” in the sense that it will help you memorize a central passage of the Bible, it’s also creative and musical. I poured my heart and soul into it. I hope that comes through. I believe it’s a project that kids will love, adults will genuinely enjoy, and that might just stick around in your music rotation for longer than a summer’s Scripture memory initiative.
