Because He Lives

Bore the burden of my sin on the cross
Emptied Himself that I might gain through His loss
Calvary, epitome of unconditional love
Almighty God left His splendor above
Unwavering devotion His life offering expressed
Securing the remedy that all could be blessed
Eternally grateful for price that He paid
Heaven can be reached. The way has been made.
Excellent sacrifice, Jesus’ human will submitted
Lived and died totally committed
It is finished, triumphant words He did cry
Victory made possible for one such as I
Ever am I thankful for His vicarious death
Single heartedly I’ll praise Him, while I have breath.
