For God so loved the world
        that he gave his one and only Son
       that whoever believes in him
         shall not perish but have eternal life."

        John 3:16, NIV

 

Because He Lives

by Bill and Gloria Gaither

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 Saviour 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 new born baby,

And feel the pride, and joy he gives;

But greater still the calm assurance,

This child can face uncertain days because He 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.

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.

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.
