Because He lives (God sent His son)
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 newborn baby
And feel the pride
And joy He brings

But greater still
The calm assurance
This child can face uncertain days
Because He 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

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

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.
