Because He lives!

Have you ever heard or read the 2nd verse of "Because He lives?"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Because He 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.

Words: Bill and Gloria Gaither

You know, I've heard and sang this song for years, but never really stopped to notice this second verse. WOW! There is so much that can be said about four short lines. God is with us always. Our uncertainty is God's strength and "life is worth the living just because He lives!"

Happy Easter to you and your family. I know this one is extra special!
