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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

    I lost a friendly bet to my then pastor. I was so certain I was correct that if I lost the bet, I would sing a solo in church...something I had never before done or even thought of doing. I lost the bet. I chose "Because He Lives" because it meant so much to me and I believed confidence would overcome fear. I am now in my mid-70's, and while I still shudder at my one and only public solo attempt many years ago, this song remains my all-time favorite and its message is still my rock! Merry Christmas, world!

    I don't have to worry about what tomorrow will bring me nor what my life is going to be in years ahead. I know that wherever i go, there is a protector, a provider, and an advocate that will stand with me, one who holds the keys to tomorrow and one who has already paved the way for my future. . . All because he lives! Praise jesus!

    As the next day has yet to arrive it is sometimes very hard to get past the night before, worrying and uncertain what the outcome will be tomorrow. But because he lives, tomorrow brings a new meaning because our living god, our lord has already paid the price for our ransom and we pray from victory not for victory. Remembering all his promises, i know that tomorrow will always be worth living because he lives. My lord is real and he is always with me in all my circumstances. Because he lives, i can trust that no matter what tomorrow brings, he is by my side watching over me and guiding me, and delivering me from any difficulties that may abound. Because he lives, i have faith to carry on.

    Because jesus lives, we don't need to fear and worry about the future. Our lord will never ever let us down. If he has given us his life, what else in this world can he not give us? Though we may be uncertain of what is going to happen in the future, we can be certain that jesus will always be there for us! He did not just die for us on the cross but he also rose up in his grave to show us that he is not a dead god, he is the god who lives forever and ever!

    This song means that if our heavenly father is living than we should not fear anymore, and that he knows how the future for us is going to be like, that what bad happened yesterday we can always face it because he is there for us and if we have all of this then life is worth living for. Amen says the lord.
