Chorus
And Jesus said
Come to the water
Stand by My side
I know you are thirsty
You won't be denied
I felt ev'ry tear drop
When in darkness you cried
And I strove to remind you
That for those tears I died

Verse 1
You said You'd come
And share all my sorrows
You said You'd be there
For all my tomorrows
I came so close to sending You away
But just like You promised
You came there to stay
I just had to pray

Verse 2
Your goodness so great
I can't understand
And dear Lord I know
That all this was planned
I know You're here now
And always will be
Your love loosed my chains
And in You I'm free
But Jesus why me

Verse 3
Jesus I give You
My heart and my soul
I know that without God
I'd never be whole
Savior You opened
All the right doors
And I thank You and praise You
From earth's humble shores
Take me I'm Yours
