[Verse 1]
 G#/D# D#7 G# G#9/C C#  
God sent His son, they called Him, Jesus;
 A#m C# G# D#7 G# D# E7 A#7 
He came to love,      heal and forgive;
 Cm D#7 G# D# G#7 C# 
He lived and died to buy my pardon,
 C#m6 G# G#dim G# D#7 G# 
An empty grave is    there to prove my Savior lives! 

[Chorus]
 G# D# G# C# G# C#  
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
 A#m C# G# D#7 Fm7 A#m D# 
Be  cause He lives, all fear is gone,
 D# G# D# G# D#7 G# F# G#7 
Because I know--------- He holds the future,
             G#       
And life is worth the living,
 D# G#  
Just because He lives! 

[Verse 2]
 G#/D# D#7 G# G#9/C C# 
How sweet to hold a newborn baby,
 A#m C# G# D#7 G#7 C# G# E7 A#m7 D#7 
And feel the pride      and joy he brings;
 Cm D#7 G# D# G#7 C#  
But greater still the calm assurance:
           C#m6 G# G#dim G# D#7 G# 
This child can face      uncertain days because He Lives!

[Verse 3]
 G#/D# D#7 G# G#9/C C# 
And then one day, I'll cross the river,
 A#m C# G# D#7 G# C# E7 A#m7 D#7 
I'll fight life's fi        nal war with pain;
 Cm D#7 G# D# G#7 C#      
And then, as death gives way to victory,
         C#m6 G# G#dim G# D#7 G#              
I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know He reigns!

Because I know--------- He holds the future,
             G#       
And life is worth the living,
 D# G#  
Just because He lives!
