157 - Because He Lives

Yah sent His Son, they called

Him Yahshua. He came to

love, heal, and forgive. He

lived and died to buy my

pardon, an empty grave is

there to prove my Savior




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 it gives. 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 reigns.
