What is Lifelink?

The Lifelink ability works like this:

If your creature has lifelink and deals damage, you gain life equal to the damage dealt. Keep in mind that even though your Lifelink creature is blocked by a creature with lower toughness than your creatures power, you will still receive life equal to the power of your creature.
