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 waters. Stand by my side.
I know you are thirsty, you won't be denied.
I felt ev'ry tear drop when in darkness you cried;
And I strove to remind you, that for those tears I died."
Your goodness so great I can't understand,
And, dear Lord, I know that all this was planned;
I know You're here now, and always will be,
Your love loosed my chains and in You I'm free;
But Jesus, why me?
Jesus, I give you my heart and my soul,
I know that without You I'd never be whole,
Saviour, You've opened all the right doors,
And I thank You and praise You from earth's humble shore,
Take me I'm Yours.
