Listen to the Tune

1. God sent His Son, they called Him Jesus,
He came to love, heal, and forgive.
He bled and died to buy my pardon. 
An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives.

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives, all fear is gone.
Because I know, I know He holds my future
And life is worth the living, just because He lives.

2. How sweet to hold a newborn baby
And feel the love and joy he gives,
But greater still the calm assurance
This child can face uncertain days because Christ lives.

3. And then one day I'll cross death's river
I'll fight life's final war with pain;
And then as death gives way to victory
I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know He lives.
