A Song I'm Singing

Still thinking about yesterday's post.....and I've had this song on my heart (and in my head)!! Hum along as you read the words - it might stick with you today!! Looking forward to a wonderful weekend!


Because He Lives
Words and music by William J. Gaither© 1971
Matthew 28:6"He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.Come, see the place where the Lord lay."


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!


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 vict'ry, 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!
