Jesus Died For You (The Door Album Version)

Jesus Died For You (The Door Album Version)

Charlie Daniels

You may be down, you may be out
With nothing to be glad about
But you can stand right up and shout
'Cause Jesus died for you

You may think that you can't cope

You may be drunk or hooked on dope

Believe me brother, you've still got hope

'Cause Jesus died for you
Maybe you ain't got a dime
You're standing in the welfare line
Or maybe you're in prison doin your time
But Jesus died for you
Satan may have you in retreat
But you won't go down in defeat
'Cause you can sittin in the mercy seat
'Cause Jesus died for you

FIRST CHORUS

E D A

He died for you - to complete salvation's plan

E D A

He died for you - He's got nail scars in His hands E A C#m
He bore the cross - to sanctify the lost B
All you've got to do is believe it, E
Get down on your knees and receive it!

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
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!
