Because He lives

1 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…

2 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… (Chorus)

3 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 victory,
I’ll see the lights of glory
‘N I’ll know He reigns.

Because He lives… (Chorus)

(Written by Gloria Gaither and William J. Gaither)
