You Did It All For Me

Recommended Posts

This is the text to a song I'm writing. I thought I would post it here and get comments before I get too far in writing the music. Feel free to criticize...I am the first to admit I'm not very good at writing lyrics.

You did it all for me

Two thousand years ago, a man walked this earth
He came with no fanfare, in a stable his mother gave birth
He came with one purpose, he came to die for me
And because of what Jesus did, I now can live set free

[Chorus]
Lord, you were mocked by the crowd; you were falsely accused
you were crowned with sharp thorns; you were beaten and bruised
you were sentenced to die; you were hung on a tree
You shed your blood, and you did it all for me.

You took the punishment, that I deserved
and you're building a mansion, that for me is reserved
I was headed to Hell, but you showed me your grace
And I know that your blood was shed, so my sins could be erased

[Chorus]

I will thank you, Lord for your free gift to me.
I will thank you, Lord for the price paid on Calvary.
The gift was eternal life, the price was your death,
and I received that free gift the day I confessed.

[Chorus]

Looks good, except for this second line:

in an inn his mother gave birth

Jesus wasn't born in the inn, but in the manger or stable.

:ooops I don't know what I was thinking of there. Thanks for pointing that out!

I've finished the music to this song, now. If anyone would like to hear it, PM me with an e-mail address and I will send a copy of it. It has trombones and trumpets playing instead of a choir singing, but it shouldn't be too hard to follow the words.

If anyone would like to buy it to sing in a group or with a choir, I would be willing to sell it for a donation--whatever you or your church can afford--to cover the cost of printing.
