A Spirit of Joy

A Spirit of Joy

A spirit of joy
A spirit of praise
A spirit of faith and hope and love
A strength for today
A spirit of boldness
The fountain of truth
A gentle contentment, my Lord,
I’m finding in You

Because He Lives

Because He Lives

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

Refrain
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 day, because He lives
Refrain

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 reigns

Refrain
