MercyMe I Would Die For You Lyrics

Last updated: 07/27/2009 11:00:00 AM

And I know that I can find You here
'Cause You promised me You'll always be there
Times like these, it's hard to see
But somehow I have a peace, You're near
And I pray that You will use my life
In whatever way Your name is glorified
Even if surrendering
Means leaving everything behind

My life has never been this clear
Now I know the reason why I'm here
You never know why You're alive
Until you know what you would die for
I would die for You

And I know I don't have much to give
But I promise You I will give You all there is
Can I possibly do less
When through Your own death I live?

No greater love is found
Than of those who lay their own lives down
As sure as I live and breathe
Now I know what it means to be free

this song was written entirely from BJ Higgins journals. he was a 14 year old boy who went to Peru on a mission trip with Awestar ministries and picked up a deadly virus. when told he was going to die, BJ replied "tell me one downside to that!" amazing attitude! he journeyed back to Peru once more before dying just a few days shy of his 16th birthday. his parents wrote a book called I would die for you. check out BJs story and awestar ministries it will change your life!! god really used this boy! :]

This song goes in depth of what we are here for. the lines " You Never Know Your Alive, Untill you know what you would die for." i think this means when before you accept that jesus died for you and you have a relationship with him you do not realize the pain he went through. being made fun of, and tortered just for you and me. that just shows me well God died for me and all we have to do is believe in him and have a relationship with him to get to heaven. i know it would be hard for me to take the things he went trough but he carried his faith the entire way through. Now think. WHAT WHOULD YOU DO FOR GOD?
