Because He Lives

This week’s video features the well-known hymn “Because He Lives.” The lyrics and music were written by Bill and Gloria Gaither. This hymn can be found in most evangelical hymnals, usually under the section of Easter or Resurrection hymns. However, it would be perfectly acceptable to sing this anytime of the year. With all that’s going on in the world today, we should remember that Christ died and rose again, victorious over sin. If we have faith and believe in Him and accept His free gift of eternal salvation, we can have that calm assurance of eternal life free from pain.

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!

How sweet to hold a newborn baby,
And feel the pride and joy he brings;
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!

Chorus:
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!

Thank you for listening!
