Because He Lives

God sent His son they called Him Jesus

He came to love, heal and forgive

He lived and He died to buy my pardon

An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives.


Then one day I’ll cross that 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


Because He lives I can face tomorrow

Because He lives all fear is gone

Because I know He holds the future

and life is worth the living just because He lives.

This is the hope of everyone who believes and receives Jesus as their Savior and Lord:   Because God gave His best gift, the gift of Jesus,  we have forgiveness through the blood of Jesus; we have Heaven as our eternal destination. Not only that, but in our everyday walking around on earth lives, His Holy Spirit is with us to comfort, lead, teach and guide.  We are not alone.

Let us remember that the reason we celebrate this time of year is because He lives.  I pray you will have a Blessed Christmas!
