- God sent His Son, they call 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.
Because He lives I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives all fear is gone,
Because I know He holds my future,
My life is worth a living just because He lives.
- How sweet to hold a new born baby,
And feel the warmth and joy it gives,
But sweeter still the blessed assurance,
This child can face uncertain days because He lives.
- And then one day across the river,
I fight life’s final war with pain;
And then as death gives way to victory,
I see the Son of glory and I know He reigns.
