“For Those Tears I Died” Song

Leave a comment

Since it is Good Friday, I was thinking about a song that I learned in college dorm devotions and chapel.  It definitely speaks of what Jesus came to earth for and how His suffering was not in vain.    This song is probably the only song I would ever sing for a public solo, and here are the words as best as I can remember them:  (I am sure they are the public domain by now)


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 teardrop when in darkness you cried,

and I strove to remind you that for those tears I died.”

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, launched. Thank you for visiting!
