Why I Believe

3.31.2014
















Thirty-three years was all He needed

to live on this earth.

To change our lives forever.

To show us our greater worth.

Though He was hated by those who saw His hands heal.

I know His perfect love reaches out still.



He is why I believe.

He is why I'm free.

He is the one who can strengthen me when I am weak.

He is why I have hope.

He's everything good I know.

He's why my sins can be as white as the snow.

He is why.



Three days was all He needed

And He rose from the dead.

Our Savior who was mocked and spit upon

Took up His own bed.

And  He lives just as sure as you and I breathe.

And He's suffered for each one of us individually.



He is why I believe.

He is why I sing.

He is the sun at noonday that gives light to everything.

He is why I have hope.

He's everything good I know.

He's why my sins can  be as white as the snow.

He is why.



I used to be so much different.

My heart's not always right where it should be

But I've felt the Savior's power to change my soul inside.

And I know there's a way back because He died.



He is why I believe.

He is why I sing.

He is the sun at noonday that gives light to everything.

He is why I have hope.

He's everything good I know.

He's why my sins can be white as the snow.

He is why.
