Because He Lives Misc. Gospel
Because He Lives
[G]God sent His son,[C] [G] they called Him, [C]Jesus; [F] [C]
He came to [G]love, [C] [G]heal and [D]forgive;[D7]
He lived and [G]died [G7]to buy my [C]pardon, [Am7]
An empty [G]grave is there to prove my [D7]Savior [G]lives!
Because He [G]lives, I can face [C]tomorrow,
Because He [G]lives, all fear is [D7]gone;
Because I [G]know [D] [G] He holds the [C]future,[Am7]
And life is [G]worth the living,
Just [D7]because He [G]lives!
[G]How sweet to hold [C] [G] a newborn [C]baby,[F] [C]
And feel the [G]pride[C] [G] and joy he [D]gives; [D7]
But greater [G]still [G7]the calm ass[C]urance: [Cm]
This child can [G]face [Em]uncertain days [D7]because He [G]Lives!
[G]And then one day,[C] [G] I'll cross the [C]river,[F] [C]
I'll fight life's [G]fi-[C] [G]nal war with [D]pain; [D7]
And then, as [G]death [G7]gives way to [C]vict'ry,[Am7]
I'll see the [G]lights of glory and I'll [D7]know He[G] lives!
