Because He Lives

A Gaither Classic

Because He Lives is a beautiful song of praise and worship that I once heard sung in a very touching way.

I had occasion to attend services in a Methodist parish in Warren Pennsylvania on several US Thanksgiving weekends. One of the pastors was a woman, and her husband was music leader. They had a young baby that was baptized this particular Sunday. After the Baptism, the father held the child and sang this song. He was below stained glass windows, and as he sung, light streamed in through the stained glass. The effect was wonderful.

This rendition by the Gaither group is very touching, and reminds me of that wonderful moment.
