Because He Lives


God sent His GSon, they called Him CJesus

He came to Glove, heal and for-Amgive; D 

He lived and Gdied, to buy my Cpardon,

An empty Ggrave is there to Dprove my Savior Glives.

Because He Glives/A /B,   I can face toCmorrow

Because He GlivesD/F# Em,   all fear is Amgone; D 

Because I Gknow /A /B  He holds the Cfuture,

And life is Gworth the living Djust because He Glives!

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 fi-nal war with pain;

And then as death gives way to victory,

I'll see the lights of glory and, I'll know He lives!
