Blessed Easter!

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.

How sweet to hold a newborn baby
And feel the pride and joy he gives;
But greater still the calm assurance:
This child can face uncertain days because Christ lives.

And then one day I'll cross the river,
I'll fight life's final war with pain;

And then, as death gives way to victory,

I'll see the lights of glory - and I'll know He lives.

Christ is Risen!
Indeed He is risen!

May your Paschal joy be full.

That song is one of my very favorites! Bill Gaither has certainly added so many wonderful pieces to the hymn lexicon.
