1. God sent his son,
They called him Jesus.
He came to love, heal and forgive.
He bled 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,
My life is worth the living just because he lives.
2. How sweet to hold
A new born baby;
And feel the pride
And joy he gives.
But better still
The calm assurance
That child can face uncertain days because he lives.
3. 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 victory,
I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know he lives.
