Because He Lives Lyrics

(Verse 1)
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

(Verse 2)
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
Just Because he lives


(Verse 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

(Chorus 2xs)

My family was blessed to have enjoyed the life of my nephew for 19 years so short too us. Verse 2 is so powerful for me and has brought comfort as I final get the meaning of verse 2. My love is resting with Jesus and Thanks be to our Father we can still have hope to see him again and we will all be in continuous Praise for all eternity.

We sang this song at my grandmother's funeral. It males me cry every time I hear it! I did choreograph a dance to it though. Whenever I dance to it, I'm filled with ressurance that I will see my grandmother again one day.
