You may think you're too far gone You've sinned so bad you can't atone But bow your head and come on home 'Cause Jesus died for you SHORT SOLO This ol' world keeps falling apart But you don't have to let it break your heart You can make a brand new start 'Cause Jesus died for you Now Satan is a mighty foe But just stand firm because you know You've got a better place to go 'Cause Jesus died for you When there's trouble in the wind Or when you face the bitter end You can start all over again 'Cause Jesus died for you You can face death with a smile Laugh at all your troubles and trials Never have to walk another lonely mile 'Cause Jesus died for you SECOND CHORUS He died for you - to break the devil's hold He died for you - to redeem your mortal soul Don't be afraid - 'Cause you debt has done been paid You just come and do your best The Holy Spirit's gonna do the rest! SOLO REPEAT FIRST CHORUS Makes no difference how wrong you've been How heavy is your load of sin The door's still open come on in 'Cause Jesus died for you Now you may think you're too far gone You've sinned so bad you can't atone But bow your head and come on home 'Cause Jesus died for you D A Jesus died for you D A Jesus died for you END SOLOHome
