Because He Lives ...

Happy Easter Weekend everyone!

There's a song that keeps playing in my head that I want to share with you all.

I'm sure you've heard this song in church or maybe not, but it's lovely and always brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it.

It beautifully describes the reason to celebrate Easter.

Why Jesus Christ is such an important person in our history.

Why He's an important person for our future.

And Why we can face anything in this world.

I pray that this song touches your heart and encourages you this holiday weekend.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him."  - John 3:16-17



Because He Lives
written by Bill & Gloria Gaither

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!

Chorus
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!

Chorus
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 vict'ry,
I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know He lives!

Chorus
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!


Easter Blessings,
