Because He Lives chords

William J. Gaither


Verse 1: 
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 know He holds the future, 
And life is worth the living, 
D               G 
Just because He lives! 
Verse 2: 
How sweet to hold a newborn baby, 
And feel the pride and joy he gives; 
But greater still the calm assurance: 
This child can face uncertain days because He Lives! 
Verse 3: 
And then one day, I'll cross the river, 
I'll fight life's final war with pain; 
And then, as death gives way to vict'ry, 
I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know He lives!
