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.

Chorus
And Jesus said, "Come to the water, stand by my side.
I know you are thirsty, you won't be denied.
I felt every teardrop, 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?

(Chorus)

Jesus, I give You my heart and my soul.
I know that without You, I'd 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!

(Chorus)
And Jesus said, "Come to the water, stand by my side.
I know you are thirsty, you won't be denied.
I felt every teardrop, when in darkness you cried;
And I strove
* to remind you,
That for those tears I died.
And I strove
* to remind you,
That for those tears I died."
