Friar firstname.lastname@example.org Because He Lives C F Because he lives, I can face tomorrow, C G Because he lives, all fear is gone!, C F Because I know-oooow, he holds the future, C G C Life is worth the living, just because he lives!

Repeat: Because He lives, I can face to [D] morrow; Because He [A] lives, all fear is gone; [E7] Because I [A] know He holds the [D] future, And life is [A] worth the living, just be [E7] cause He [A] lives. Verse Two: How sweet to hold a new born baby, And feel the pride and joy he (she) gives; But greater still, the calm assurance. This child can face uncertain days, because He lives.
