Because He Lives!

During this Easter season as we pause to reflect upon Jesus’ incredible suffering, his selfless sacrifice, and sorrowful death, let us also remember to ponder our infinite blessings because He Lives! Enjoy this beautiful song by Sally DeFord.

Read “Because He Lives”, Lyrics

Because He lives; Because He rose in mighty triumph from the grave,
I put my trust in Him, and seek to follow Him in faith.
 
Because He lives, I shall find strength to stand against the tempter’s power
He is my refuge and defense in every troubled hour
 
 Chorus:
Because He lives, I can bear whatever burden may be mine
I am encircled in the arms of love divine
Because He lives, He will banish every shadow of my pain
Every sorrow will be swallowed up in Him
For in His hand is healing for the weary soul
This I know because He lives
 
Because He lives my heart is filled with peace amid a world of fear
And through the blindness of the night, in Him I rest secure
  
Because He lives there is no task so great that I cannot endure
I bear no heartache that His tender mercy cannot cure
  
(Chorus)
 
Because He lives I will fear no darkness
Because He lives I will walk in light
Because He lives I will praise His kindness
Because He lives Hope shines ever bright
Because He lives I will seek His righteousness
Because He lives I’ll follow where He leads
Because He lives I shall conquer even death
And I shall live because He lives!
 
Because He lives I will rejoice in Christ and glorify His name
And with the willing voice of gratitude proclaim: My Savior lives!
 
Because He lives He will banish every shadow of my pain
Every sorrow will be swallowed up in Him
 
For in His hand is healing for the weary soul
This I know, Because He lives
