“Because He Lives I Can Face Tomorrow” is a beautiful gospel hymn written by Bill and Gloria Gaither in the Spring of 1970.
The 1960's was an era that was confusing and disorderly with a quantum shift in values that was deeply disturbing to Bill and Gloria. They had begun to wonder if God hadn’t given up on the world.
THE FOLLOWING ISSUES WERE REALLY BOTHERING THEM:
The educational system was being penetrated with the “God is dead” idea.
Drug use and racial tension were increasing.
The older generation felt that the country’s best days were behind them and their children (now baby boomers) agreed.
They discovered that they had a baby on the way. It was wonderful news, yet it also concerned them. Was it really a wise thing to bring a baby into such a world?
One sunny day in early spring of 1970, Gloria saw a tiny blade of grass that had pushed aside layers of dirt, rock and concrete to reach the sunshine of the world above. It had such a strong will to live; it had overcome all the odds to fulfill its destiny.
That blade of grass inspired Gloria to write a hymn expressing the hope that was shaped by the resurrection of Jesus and the birth of her son.
WORDS FROM THE HYMN
“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. … 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 days because He 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!”
