Because He LIVES

by | June 15, 2011

        There’s a lot on my heart this morning…an overwhelming burden. As I was thinking and praying God has been been bringing verses and truths to mind…and then this song came.
          It’s because He lives that I can live too and face this day, and tomorrow…and the rest of my life. Praise Him for He is worthy of our praise!
          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 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!
