Introducing Lauren Daigle

Story Behind Lauren Daigle How Can It Be song

In an interview, Lauren Daigle shared her story behind this powerful song. She mentions that even though she hasn’t written this song, she did feel like hearing her own thoughts when she first heard about it. She describes about how and when she first heard about it.

Lauren Daigle with her team were going over the EP songs when her producer Paul Mabury told her about this song. She has tears rolling down her face, the first time she heard this song play. She was totally fascinated and amazed by the beauty of the lyrics. Then her producer painted a background picture for the song, and this is when she turned speechless.

Paul crafted the story something like this, ‘Jesus is bending down and writing a story, when all of a sudden, a woman is thrown at his feet by the crowd. She is caught in the adultery. People tells Jesus about what she has done, and the only punishment according to law is to stone her. The woman is humiliated and thrown into the mixture of law. But Jesus gets up and steps up and shows her what the purpose was even before He fulfilled it.’

When Paul told her this story, she thought of everything that she has done to offend anyone, things she has said to hurt people, things she has done even knowing that they were wrong. The story of the woman is something that everyone can relate in some or the other way. The sin we commit, and the feeling knowing that how much it would have broken the Father’s heart. But he forgives all, his grace makes a new sense because of this song.

While Recording The Song

There have been many turn of events for the singer while recording this album. She started noticing and hearing from the people that they cannot approach the Lord because they are ashamed of their sins. That the feeling of guilt often takes them over. And she started relating all these things to the accuracy and beauty of the song, like how graciously Jesus takes everything in.

While recording the album, Lauren’s grandfather passed away due to cancer. She was very close to her grandparents, as se use to live with them while in college. She moved to Nashville and started the journey in her career. But shortly after, her grandfather felt sick. She was supposed to record songs, but her grandfather was in immense pain and she begged to Lord to be able to say goodbye to her grandfather. And few days before he passed, she was there besides him.

Lauren Daigle How Can It Be Lyrics and Music Chords

[Verse 1]

I am guilty
Ashamed of what I’ve done, what I’ve become
These hands are dirty
I dare not lift them up to the Holy one


You plead my cause
You right my wrongs
You break my chains
You overcome
You gave Your life
To give me mine
You say that I am free
How can it be?
How can it be?

[Verse 2]

I’ve been hiding
Afraid I’ve let you down, inside I doubt
That You could love me
But in Your eyes there’s only grace now



Though I fall, You can make me new
From this death I will rise with You
Oh the grace reaching out for me
How can it be?
How can it be?
