Happy Easter! The old hymn Because He Lives has been on my mind lately.
Here is the first verse with the chorus:
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!
Easter celebration should involve less of the commercialization (the dressing up, the food, the Easter eggs, the and bunny) and be more about Jesus.
