Song title: BECAUSE HE LIVES…words and music—©1993, 2015 Elton Houck (ASCAP) /China Co-Op Music Publishing…reprint from this author’s book “THE 6TH DAY—Exiled from the garden” –Outskirts press© 2015 Elton Houck/ ……………………………………………………… “BECAUSE HE LIVES”……../ VERSE 1:…We ran and did hide/In fear for our lives/Even I who claimed to love Jesus so/Denied Him, saying this man I don’t know/…………. VERSE 2:…Bitter tears I cried/Pain I could not hide My heart was broken and I could not see/How my Lord ever loved a man like me/……………. CHORUS:…I could see his sad eyes staring at me/As I denied Him/And told them, “Let me be!”/Although my fear made me run away/Shame would not stay/Jesus’ love, oh they could not slay/Because He lives/I’m forgiven today/Because He lives, I’m forgiven today/Because He lives—I’m forgiven today/…….. VERSE 3:…They crucified Him/In a tomb he lay/But something strange happened on the third day/The tomb was empty, the stone rolled away/…….. VERSE 4:…Then Jesus appeared/Wiped away my tears/I touched the nail scars in His hands and feet/My heart was mended when Jesus forgave me/…… SPEAKING DIALOGUE---- I saw Him ascend then, and I Peter, even I will see Him come again. Until that day, I will stay a fisher of men.//\\\\................... -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------note___ Original photos (2 combined) I took in 2006 with a Canon AE 1P using a 80/200 telephoto lens shooting lights at night while rotating the field of vision,,,Next-stage 2 (c) 2021 -a digital overpainting of the backdrop only--original images not altered. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Flag Counter ========--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

He lives in all of US Elton, the problem is not everyone wants to except that

Artist Reply: You got it right Ray--not everyone wats to accept God's love and salvation...but still we must tell them all...let not one person's eternity be in the flames of hell because we did not show them the way to heaven--JESUS!
