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!

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 and
I'll know He lives!
