He Died For Me

Wandering, bewildered by this wilderness of sin
Lost and lonely, there was only One who'd take me in
Days of sorrow, years of shame was all I had to give

Yet He died for me, O can it be
His blood has paid the price
Laid on the line His life for mine
Love's greatest sacrifice

I could spend eternity just trying to repay
And still I'd be indebted for the sacrifice He made
Heaps of silver, mounds of gold could never buy my peace

So He died for me, O can it be
His blood has paid the price
Laid on the line His life for mine
Love's greatest sacrifice

Now I want to live for Him who died for me that day
Pure devotion, life's ambition following His way
I would never dream of leaving Christ, my dearest Friend

Because He died for me, O now I see
His blood has paid the price
Laid on the line His life for mine
Love's greatest sacrifice

STORY BEHIND THIS SONG...

(Read 2Corinthians 5: 14-15)
"For the love of Christ controls us... and He died for all , that they who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf."

How can there be any other response? Jesus died for me. The very least I can do is live for Him.

No wonder they call the Gospel good news!

In writing Christian music,
lyrics have to be
the heartbeat of the song.
After all, it is the lyrics
that primarily distinguish Christian music
from secular music.
It's not the only mark
of distinction,
but it is
the most important.
