Somebody Died For Me

I heard the phrase “Somebody Died For Me” in a message this past week and I wrote a poem about!

We just finished up our youth conference at our church this week and it was an awesome conference.

There was one phrase that stuck out these past two days and I still can’t get it out of my head! I can’t stop the feeling of joy and excitement it gives. I can’t help but think of the seriousness of the matter. I can’t help but feel so loved by God. The phrase is the title of this blog, “Somebody died for me.”

“ But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

Somebody Died For Me

In my sin and all alone,
Somebody had to die for me.
Jesus, willingly left His Father’s throne
Just so He could die for me.

Born in a little town,
Knowing He had to die for me.
He left His robe and crown,
Just so He could die for me.

Lived a sinless, perfect life,
So that He could die for me.
Endured so much pain and strife,
So that He could die for me.

As He hung upon that cross,
He was dying for me.
When all hope was lost,
He died for me.

He was laid in the tomb,
He had died for me.
Oh, but there’s joyous news,
He arose for me!

He has conquered the grave,
He has risen for me!
Receive Him and I can be saved,
He has risen for me!

Yes, somebody died for me.
A sacrifice for my sin,
He arose again,
So I can one day be with Him.

I’m so thankful
Somebody died for me.
