Because He Lives

On today's spirituality post, I have chosen to share the lyrics of a  wonderful hymn we sang in church today. This song was composed by Bill and Gloria Gaither in the sixties while passing through some situations while expecting their third child.It was a very traumatic time in their lives but amidst it all Goria felt God's peace in the dark room and the song was conceived.

Because He Lives

(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.


(2) 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.


(3) 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.


(4) 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.
