Because He Lives

All morning, I’ve had the words to that wonderful hymn stuck in my head. “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!”

Today, and every other day, it fills me with great peace and joy to know that I serve a Savior who lives. Easter isn’t about candy or frilly dresses or a big white bunny – it’s about remembering what Christ accomplished for us on the cross and about celebrating the eternal life He granted us in His resurrection. It is finished, He lives, and if we trust in Him we are granted life everlasting! Hallelujah, what a promise! How great to serve a God who lives!

“God sent His son, they called 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 the future,
And life is worth the living just because He lives.

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.

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.

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 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!”
