Verse 1:
Jesus said if you believe my Father sent me
And you rely on me in all the things you do
And if you trust because I live, you will live also
Then you will do far greater things than e’er I do

Chorus:
Because I live and reign above, you will live also
Because I live and reign above, you will live, too
If your heart remains in me, and you honor my commandments
All you ask for, in my name, I’ll do for you

Verse 2:              
Jesus said as he sat down with his disciples
Yet a while and the world will not see me
But you will see me once again, I will come to you and then
You will know I’m there for you eternally

Chorus:
Because I live and reign above, you will live also
Because I live and reign above, you will live, too
If your heart remains in me, and you honor my commandments
All you ask for, in my name, I’ll do for you

Verse 3:
Jesus said I am the Vine, you are the branches
If you abide in me much fruit you’ll surely see
And then when your race is won
And your time on earth is done
You’ll be rewarded with a crown of victory

Chorus:
Because I live and reign above, you will live also
Because I live and reign above, you will live, too
If your heart remains in me, and you honor my commands
All you ask for, in my name, I’ll do for you
