The wordings are also very encouraging and the tune is nice. The .mp3 song sung by various people plus a very beautiful sound track can be downloaded from Sally DeFord Music website.
Because He Lives
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
Because he lives, I shall find strength to stand against the tempter's power He is my refuge and defense in every troubled hour Because he lives
Chorus: Because he lives I can bear whatever burden may be mine I am encircled in the arms of love divine because he 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
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
Because he lives there is no task so great that I cannot endure I bear no heartache that his tender mercy cannot cure Because he lives
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
He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. Matthew 28:6
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Matthew 28 5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. 6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. 7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. 8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.
Romans 8 28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. 34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 5 1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; 4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope: 5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. 6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. 10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
