What Did He Die For

Inspirational

He was 21 in 1944
He was hope, and He was courage on a lonely shore
Sent there His mother with love beyond Her tears
Just a young American who chose to rise above His fears

And as I watch Him struggle up that hill
Without a thought of turning back
I cannot help but wonder

What did He die for when He died for you and me?
Made the sacrifice so that we could all be free
I believe we will answer each to Heaven
For the way we spend a priceless liberty

Look inside and ask the question
What did he die for when he died for me?

To the darkest day in A.D. 33
Came the mercy and compassion of eternity
Sent there by a Father with love beyond His tears
Blameless One, the only Son to bear the guilt of all these years

And as I watch Him struggle up that hill
Without a thought of turning back
I cannot help but wonder

What did He die for when He died for you and me ?
Made the sacrifice so that we could all be free
I believe we will answer each to Heaven
For the way we spend a priceless liberty

Look inside and ask the question
What did he die for?

He died for freedom, He died for love
And all the things we do to pay Him back
Could never be enough

What did He die for when He died for you and me?
Made the sacrifice so that we could all be free
I believe we will answer each to Heaven
For the way we spend a priceless liberty

Look inside and ask the question
What did he die for when He died for me?

Made the sacrifice so that we could all be free
I believe we will answer each to Heaven
For the way we spend a priceless liberty

Look inside and ask the question
What did he die for when He died for me?
