Because He Lives Lyrics

I BELIEVE IN THE SON

I BELIEVE IN THE RISEN ONE

I BELIEVE I OVERCOME

BY THE POWER OF HIS BLOOD

 

CHORUS

AMEN

AMEN

I’M ALIVE

I’M ALIVE

BECAUSE HE LIVES

AMEN

AMEN

LET MY SONG JOIN THE ONE THAT NEVER ENDS

BECAUSE HE LIVES

 

I WAS DEAD IN THE GRAVE

I WAS COVERED IN SIN AND SHAME

I HEARD MERCY CALL MY NAME

HE ROLLED THE STONE AWAY

 

REPEAT CHORUS

 

BECAUSE HE LIVES

I CAN FACE TOMORROW

BECAUSE HE LIVES

EVERY FEAR IS GONE

I KNOW HE HOLDS MY LIFE MY FUTURE IN HIS HANDS

 

REPEAT CHORUS

One story about "Because He Lives"

  • Jeanine Lent says:

    Many years ago, during a very low point in my life, I told God I couldn’t go on & asked for His forgiveness. This was right before I tried to kill myself. It would have worked, if “something” hadn’t taken hold of my husband to come home early. Because of this “something,” I survived. I was angry at God, for about 2 weeks. Then I was in awe because I realized He did not want me to die, that He had plans for me. I promised the Lord, at that time, that I would never do that again, no matter how bad things might get. And I did have some very bad times.
    I heard this song, for the first time, on Music Choice on my TV. It impacted me very strongly. I certainly AM alive because HE lives! Regardless of life’s difficulties, physical illness & disability, I feel so much joy because the Lord wants me here. I don’t know why. I don’t know His plans. But I am alive because the Lord wants me to be alive. I don’t have to be afraid of anything. When I do feel down a bit, I listen to this song now, & it lifts me up again. Matt Maher sings it with so much emotion. It feels like my song…”Because He lives, I can face tomorrow….” 🙂
