We Shall Live

When a girl, the Lord I found, in the morning of my days,
Then I walked on solid ground, and the Lord I learned to praise.
As I followed Him through life, rougher grew the paths I trod,
Old age, now one final strife, and I go to meet my God.

Once a boy on trouble bent, I began my wayward path.
ĎTil my soul by grief was spent, and I feared the Saviorís wrath.
I repented of my sin, put my trust in Christ alone.
I have lived for Him since then, now my life is all but gone.

I, a pris'ner on Death Row, without peace or hope did dwell,
I would reap as I did sow, I would die and go to hell.
I could not deserve His grace, yet Christ saved me from my sin,
And though death I still must face, Paradise Iíll enter in.

(Chorus)
We shall live, we shall live, because Christ died upon that tree,
Bought us back, made us Godís children for eternity.
We shall live, because Christ rose, because He lives and reigns on High.
We shall live with Christ forever, never more to die.

When our life on earth is new, ev'ry day is fresh and clear.
As our childhood we go through, time, weíve not yet learned to fear.
But then faster go the days, and we find that youth flies by.
Soon weíre old, set in our ways, and our death is growing nigh.

Like awaking from a dream, to the bright sunshine of morn,
Fleeting days, this life will seem, when our ties to earth are torn.
We will rise to meet Him there, in that place that knows no night;
In that heav'nly land so fair, where our Savior is the light.

(Chorus)
We shall live, we shall live, because Christ died upon that tree,
Bought us back, made us Godís children for eternity.
We shall live, because Christ rose, because He lives and reigns on High.
We shall live with Christ forever, never more to die.
We shall live.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
