Because He Lives I Can Face Tomorrow.

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 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.


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!”
