"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 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! 
 
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 vict'ry, 
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! 
And life is worth the living, 
Just because He lives!
