526 - Because He Lives

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 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.
