  Because He Lives  - By Bill Gaither


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 Saviour 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.

How sweet to hold A new born baby, And feel the pride, And joy he gives; But greater still The calm assurance, This child can face uncertain days Because He lives. (chorus)

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 lives.
