Matthew 28:6
“He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.
Come, see the place where the Lord lay.”

          • 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!
            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!
            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!
        • 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 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!
