Billy Ray Cyrus I Need You Now Lyrics

I've never seen that little town where you were born
It was long before my time and far away
But as time goes on I think about you more and more
And wonder what it was like in those day's
I wish I could have walked with you
You might have called me friend
But there's no way I could've known you then

But I know you now
I know your name
A lot of awesome things you did and why you came
I didn't know you when
You helped that lame man rise up from his bed
I didn't know you when
You stood there and called lazarus from the dead
But I know you now

I didn't see you feed that tired hungry crowd
With five loaves and two fish one afternoon
And I didn't see you catch peter's hand
So he wouldn't drown
When he tried the walk on water like you
I couldn't see your face
When you taught those little kids
There's just no way I could've seen you then

But I see you now
I see your love
I see a tiny glimpse of you in every one of us
I didn't see you on the mount of olives
Crying as you prayed
I couldn't see you when you were kissed by judus and betrayed
But I see you now

Oh, I didn't need you when that bitter angry mob
Shouted out crucify him
And I couldn't have needed you
When they laughed and mocked you
But it could be I'm a little bit like them

'cause I need you now
I need your grace
And how I needed your forgiveness to be saved
I didn't need you when pilates soldiers beat you to the ground
I didn't need you when you hung there
Bleeding from your thorny crown
But I need you now
Oh, I need you now
