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.
Verse 2: How sweet to hold our 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.
Verse 3: 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 reigns.
Chorus: 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.
