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 saviour 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
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
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 end
I’ll know He lives
