Because He Lives

[Verse 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


[Verse 2] 

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
