Because he lives

KEY

F#

1. God sent His son,

                            B  

they called Him, Jesus;

                     F#                        C#

He came to love, heal and forgive

                     F#                    B  

He lived and died to buy my pardon,

                   F#

An empty grave is there

         C#                   F#

to prove my Savior lives!


                           F#     F#7

***Because He lives,

                     B  

I can face tomorrow

                      F#                    C#

Because He lives, all fear is gone

                  F#     F#7              B  

Because I know He holds the future,

                 F#

And life is worth the living,

C#                        F#

Just because He lives!


                            F#                   B  

2. How sweet to hold a newborn bAby,

                       F#                      C#

And feel the pride and joy he gives;

                     F#                     B  

But greater still the calm assurance

                          F#              C#

This child can face uncertain days

                      F#

because He Lives!


                          F#                         B  

3. And then one day, I'll cross the river,

                  F#                     C#

I'll fight life's final war with pain;


             F#                                   B  

And then, as death gives way to victory

                   F#                C#

I'll see the lights of glory and

                    F#

I'll know He lives!
