Because He Lives (DeFord)


Because He Lives (DeFord)

Music for Children, Submitted Music (1998-2006)

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

 

Because he lives (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 (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 heart-ache 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 glorify his name,

And with the willing voice of gratitude proclaim my Savior lives!

Because he live he will banish every shadow of my pain,

Every sorrow will be swallowed up on him,

For in his hand is healing for the weary soul.  This I know, This I know, because he lives.
