Lyrics/Composition: Gloria Gaither, William J. Gaither

G                                 C
God sent His son, they called Him Jesus
           G    D              D7
He came to love... heal and forgive
             G    G7        C
He lived and died... to buy my pardon,
         G                 D               G
An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives!

           G     G7              C
Because He lives... I can face tomorrow,
           G                  D
Because He lives, all fear is gone
          G D G                C
Because I k-n-o-w He holds the future,
            G
And life is worth the living,
D               G
Just because He lives!

G                           C
How sweet to hold a newborn baby,
             G     D             D7
And feel the pride... and joy he brings
             G    G7           C
But greater still... the calm assurance
               G              D               G
This child can face uncertain days because He Lives!

           G     G7              C
Because He lives... I can face tomorrow,
           G                  D
Because He lives, all fear is gone
          G D G                C
Because I k-n-o-w He holds the future,
            G
And life is worth the living,
D               G
Just because He lives!

             G                   C
And then one day, I'll cross the river,
                  G     D           D7
I'll fight life's final... war with pain
             G     G7              C
And then, as death... gives way to victory,
             G               D                G
I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know He lives!

           G     G7              C
Because He lives... I can face tomorrow,
           G                  D
Because He lives, all fear is gone
          G D G                C
Because I k-n-o-w He holds the future,
            G
And life is worth the living,
D               G
Just because He lives!
