For Those Tears I Died

Kevin Jacobson
Words & Music by Marsha Stevens


This has been one of my favorite songs since I was a teenager. It was the song I sang in my first Christian talent competition when I was in eighth grade. I came in second place! This song has been an incredible blessing to me. Meeting its writer, Marsha Stevens, has been a great blessing too. She is an awesome woman of the Lord and has really influenced me and my ministry.


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 there 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 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 God 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
