"Because He Lives" lyrics - KRISTIN CHENOWETH

"Because He Lives"
(Bill Gaither / Gloria Gaither)

God sent his son
They called him Jesus
He came to love, heal and forgive
He bled 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
My 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 better still
The calm assurance
That 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
