He Died For Me Chords

 

  D 
I saw One hanging on a tree,
      A/C#         
In agony and blood.
         Bm
Who fixed His languid eyes on me,
      A     
As near His cross I stood.

 


     Chorus
          A                D

    O, can it be, upon a tree
            A                        D
    The Savior died for me.
           G                              D
    My soul is thrilled, my heart is filled,
         A                            D
    To think He died for me.

 


Interludes:     D         A/C#       Bm      A


          D
Sure, never to my latest breath,
     A/C#
Can I forget that look;
   Bm 
It seemed to charge me with His death,
               A
Though not a word He spoke. 


     Chorus


      D 
My conscience felt and owned the guilt,
        A/C#
And plunged me in despair.
  Bm
I saw my sins His blood had spilt,
        A
And helped to nail Him there. 


     Chorus


   D 
A second look He gave, which said,
  A/C#
I freely all forgive.
        Bm 
This blood is for thy ransom paid;
   A
I die that thou may live.


     Chorus
