Because He lives, I, too, shall live;
The same life quickens me
That held His spirit all secure
Above the death-bound tree.
Because He lives, I cannot die.
Death signifies no loss;
My soul shall know but spirit change
Because He knew the cross.
Because He lives, His cross transmutes
Death into life, for me;
And failure, fear, disease, and death,
Love crowns with victory.
