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"

  • Margie says:

    The original “Because He Lives” and therefore this version has a ton of meaning for me. I had gone down a terrible path and found myself in jail. This was the night of my arrest and as I sat in the jail cell with my Bible at my side, knowing God loved me any way yet scared about the next few hours, days, weeks of my life, I laid my head down on a flat pillow and heard the words of Because He Lives running through my head. I had not heard the song for a very long time but the words just came to me. They gave me comfort . . . so know when I hear Matt Maher’s version I am reminded of where I have been and where God has brought me. Because He Lives . . . I can face anything.
