'Dead Man Walking' Jeremy Camp Official Video

"Grammy-nominated Christian artist Jeremy Camp releases the official music video for ‘Dead Man Walking.’ This powerful song reminds us of the hope and strength that we can find in Jesus Christ.


“I was a dead man walking
Until I was a man walking with You
I was a blind man falling
Until I felt the life You're calling me to
Pulling me out of the darkness and
Pulling me out of the lies
Putting the beat in my heart again
I was a dead man walking
Until You loved this dead man walking back to life”

‘Dead Man Walking’ is based on Colossians 2:13–14. This verse says “13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.”

This was a very vulnerable record for Jeremy and, this song especially, holds great meaning to him. “There's a lyric in the song that says freedom was something I never found, trying to find it 6 feet in the ground. It's a very picturesque way to say, 'When I wasn't serving the Lord, or whatever your situation may be, you're not going to find the freedom unless you completely surrender.'”

God gives us support and lifts us up when we need help. But we must believe in Him whole-heartedly and we will be alive again through Him. Jeremy Camp puts it perfectly when he says, “Listen, until you give your life to Christ, completely surrender to Him, you literally are like a dead man walking.”
