This is one of my favorite hymns.
I love the words, mostly.
It also takes me back to Willow Grove, PA where my mother grew up with all of her siblings. We would sing this song regularly at the church up the street from her house on Sunday Mornings.


God sent His Son
They called him Jesus
He came to love, heal and forgive
He lived and died
To buy my pardon
An empty grave is there to prove
my Savior lives
Because He lives,
I can face tomorrow
Because He lives
All fear is gone
Because I know
He holds the future
And life is worth the living just
Because He lives
