One of my favorite Hymns. To read the words of this hymn brings tears of gratefulness to my eyes. The story it tells is so true and comforting. This hymn gives hope and comfort for the future of my children, Because He Lives!
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!
Verse 2: The third and forth lines mean so much to me as a mother!
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!
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 vict'ry,
I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know He lives!
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!
