Because He Lives


God sent His Son  .... They called Him Jesus;
He came to love, heal and forgive.
He lived and died to buy my pardon;
An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives.

Because He lives; I can face tomorrow;
Because He lives; All fear is gone.
Because I know He holds the future
And Life is worth the living .. just because He lives.

How sweet to hold a newborn baby
And feel the pride and joy he gives;
But greater still the calm assurance;
This child can face uncertain days because He lives.

Because He lives; I can face tomorrow;
Because He lives; All fear is gone.
Because I know He holds the future
And Life is worth the living .. just because He lives.

And then one day ... I'll cross the river;
I'll fight life's final war with pain.
And then, as death gives way to vict'ry,
I'll see the lights of glory .. and I'll know He reigns.

Because He lives; I can face tomorrow;
Because He lives; All fear is gone.
Because I know He holds the future
And Life is worth the living .. just because He lives.
