For Those Tears I Died

You said you'd come and share all my sorrows,
You said you'd be there for all my tomorrows,
I came so close to sending you away,
But just like you promised, you came here to stay,
I just had to pray.
And Jesus said,
"Come to the water, stand by my side.
I know you are thirsty, you won't be denied.
I felt every tear drop, when in darkness you cried,
And I strove to remind you, It's for those tears I died"
Your goodness so great, I can't understand,
And dear Lord, I know now that all this was planned.
I know You're here now and always will be,
Your love loosened my chains, and in You I'm free,
But Jesus why me?
Jesus, I give You, my heart and my soul,
I know now without God, I'll never be whole,
Savior, You opened all the right doors,
And I thank You and praise You from earth's humble shores,
Take me I'm Yours!
