Because He Lives [ Adele Lathrop ]


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.
