Becaue He Lives
William J and Gloria 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 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.
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.
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 lives.
