John Elefante - No One's Ever Died For Me Before lyrics

Kneeling in the darkness trying hard to pray
But the words don't come out easy
It's been a long and trying day
I'm reaching out my heart to you
I'm reaching out my hand and I ask you
Lord, Reveal to me what I don't understand

Why the world that You created
Would turn it's back on You
And the children that You love would run away
In a land of broken promises
You are my only Friend
So take this heart of a broken man
And help him live again

Until I looked into my Father's eyes
No one's ever cried for me before
I thought I knew love 'til You came along
No one's ever died for me before

My heart was like a candle blowing in the wind
And my soul was like a refugee
That You laid at a sin
In You I am made innocent
Like a child I run to You
Just waiting for Your guiding hand
To lead me to the truth

And I know the tears You cried for me
Like a father for his son
Represent the years You waited
As they fall one by one
All the shadows cast upon my life
Are truly dead and gone
You took this heart of a broken man and
You made it live again

I'm never gonna look back again
My love for You will never end
You took this heart of a broken man
And made it live again
