Because He Lives

Because He Lives

Verse 1:

G C
God sent His son, they called Him, Jesus
  G D D7
He came to love, heal and for - give  
  G G7 C
He lived and died to buy my pardon
  G D G
An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives!

Verse 2:

  G C
How sweet to hold a newborn baby
  G D D7
And feel the pride and joy he gives  
  G G7 C
But greater still the calm as - surance
  G D G
This child can face uncertain days, because He lives

Verse 3:

  G C
And then one day, I'll cross the river,
  G D D7
I'll fight life's final war with pain  
  G G7 C
And then, as death gives way to victory,
  G D G
I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know He lives!

Chorus:

  G G7 C
Because He lives, I can face to - morrow,
  G D D7
Because He lives, all fear is gone  
  G D7 G C
Because I kn - ow He holds the future,
  G
And life is worth the living
D G
Just because He lives!
