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!

Chorus
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 that 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!

Chorus
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
My life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!
Yes, life is worth the living,
Just because He Lives!


An extra verse not included in my audio:

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!

"He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.
Come, see the place where the Lord lay."
