[V1]
 G                                  C
 God sent His son, they called Him, Jesus;
           G                  C    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!
 
 
[C]
 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,
             G                 D               G
 And life is worth the living, Just because He lives!
 
 
[V2]
 G                           C
 How sweet to hold a newborn baby,
               G               C    D7
 And feel the pride and joy he gives; ||
            G D G             C
 But greater still the calm assurance:
                G              D               G
 This child can face uncertain days because He Lives!
 
 
[V3]
 G                                C
 And then one day, I'll cross the river,
                   G              C    D7
 I'll fight life's final war with pain; ||
            G D G                C
 And then, as death gives way to vict'ry,
               G              D                G
 I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know He lives!
