You Died On A Hill On Calvary’s Tree

05 Apr

Originally written 2001

you died on a hill on Calvary’s tree

the last you thought was a thought of me

you gave up your life to set men free

safe from harm upon Calvary’s tree

You gave me the love I needed to see

you told me truths only I needed to hear

you took away my uncleanness and made me pure

you took my heart and opened its door

you gave me new life, one holy and pure

made me eternal for evermore

you saved me from sin and made me new

you tore me away from feeling blue

you saw me through my pains

took away my tears and filled me with joy

giving me new life fo future years away

you’ve taken my heart

and filled it up now

but it’s overwhelming for those long-lost souls

so my heart overflows

pining with love for other still lost souls

souls still lost in the search pulls me strong

I only want to reach and help them

my heart cries for you

but I cannot find the way ahead

to follow your will

to reach out in your name

I come so close

yet you seem so far away

capture my love

give me the time that I need

my heart yearns

in sorrow filled dreams

I cry and I cry

but cannot feel heard

where is the love to hold me fast

have I lost your love along the way

I am blinded now

even when I try

Why have I not reached you goal for me

why have I still fallen short today

my time is coming near but still I cannot see trough

my time is coming near

but I still cannot see through my fears

how than can I see through to you

yet still not find my way

I know you are there

 but I still gotta ask where are you

why am I so blind to what is  for known

my heart has been torn so many a time

but I still continue to grow in that long thin line

even then I still say where are you

I cannot find your great desire

please oh lord just give me a sign

why is it no one can be just like you

you created us in your likeness

you loved,

you laughed,

you even helped us through

but in the end

the only one perfect is still just you

no matter how hard we may try

we truly could never be just like you

bring us home

bring us home

we need you lord

we need you now

no more tears

no more fears

no more sorrow

no more pain

until the end you are our gain

life is so hard and ever so long

but all the more we carry on

you died on a hill on Calvary’s tree

the last thought you thought was a thought of me

you gave up your life and set me free

safe from harm on Calvary’s tree

you gave me the love I needed to see

you told me the truths I needed to hear

you took away my uncleanness and made me pure

you took my heart and opened its door

giving me new life

you remembered me all along

traveling long trying paths still looking for the way

you shown a light to guide my way

brought me people to help them see you too

still I don’t feel the satisfaction of me

I still look in life for the truth for my very own roads

I still feel a sense of pain and dismay

even after you have taken it all from within me

knowing that it will never go away

I still move on ahead looking for my way

down winding roads

and hurdles in my way

you ask me why

I answer because you have been there as my friend along my way

you have seen me through each day

and when I couldn’t go no more

you carryed me the rest of the way pulling me back ahead

now I tell your story for others to hear

only hearing the truths will bring them near

near where they can create their own journey with you

their own experiences helping them grow with you as I have so

you have held my hand along the whole way

you have remained that friend

you have shown and shared so many miracles I have seen

to them I share just what stories of my own I have seen

I am the voice to change one’s life for their way

knowing this I still long for you

for your closeness and love

that I feel embrace me

you died on a hill on Calvary’s tree

the last thought you thought was a thought of me

you gave up your life to set me free

safe from harm upon Calvary’s tree

you gave me the love I needed to see

you told me the truths Only I needed to hear

you took away my uncleanness and made me pure

you took my heart and opened its door

you took my life and save my soul from death and suffering

you are faithful

you are true

you are Jesus Christ

you are the son of God

you are the peace and life for men

the one who loved me and saved me setting me free
