Because He Lives Misc. Gospel
Because He Lives
[Db]God sent His son,[F#] [Db] they called Him, [F#]Jesus; [B] [F#]
He came to [Db]love, [F#] [Db]heal and [Ab]forgive;[Ab7]
He lived and [Db]died [Db7]to buy my [F#]pardon, [Ebm7]
An empty [Db]grave is there to prove my [Ab7]Savior [Db]lives!
Because He [Db]lives, I can face [F#]tomorrow,
Because He [Db]lives, all fear is [Ab7]gone;
Because I [Db]know [Ab] [Db] He holds the [F#]future,[Ebm7]
And life is [Db]worth the living,
Just [Ab7]because He [Db]lives!
[Db]How sweet to hold [F#] [Db] a newborn [F#]baby,[B] [F#]
And feel the [Db]pride[F#] [Db] and joy he [Ab]gives; [Ab7]
But greater [Db]still [Db7]the calm ass[F#]urance: [F#m]
This child can [Db]face [Bbm]uncertain days [Ab7]because He [Db]Lives!
[Db]And then one day,[F#] [Db] I'll cross the [F#]river,[B] [F#]
I'll fight life's [Db]fi-[F#] [Db]nal war with [Ab]pain; [Ab7]
And then, as [Db]death [Db7]gives way to [F#]vict'ry,[Ebm7]
I'll see the [Db]lights of glory and I'll [Ab7]know He[Db] lives!
