Because He Lives!!!

For some reason, this hymn got stuck in my head the other day, and all day long I was humming the tune and singing the words. The lyrics are amazing, and such a helpful reminder when times are tough. I particulaly love the chorus which reminds us that we don't have to be afraid of what the future holds because He lives!!! No matter how tough things are, we can be sure that "life is worth the living just because He lives."

Because He Lives ~ 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 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 victory,
I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know He lives.


God bless!
