I do not know who wrote this but I was taught it by my late friend and it is my favourite piece that I play on guitar.

JESUS WAS PRAYING FOR ME

Jesus went out into a lonely place to pray,
And He was praying for me,
There to meet His Father before the break of day.
Jesus was praying for me.
Praying for the power all mens broken hearts to bind,
Giving strength to palsied and sight to the blind,
Bringing joy and hope and peace to lost mankind,
Jesus was praying for me.

Jesus went out into a garden to pray,
He was praying for me.
Judas was at hand the Son of man to betray,
Jesus was praying for me.
As He knelt in agony He knew sin's evil power,
Legions of Angels could have saved Him from that hour
But He faced the Cross for Satan held me in his power
Jesus was praying for me.

Then they took my Saviour to the Cross of Calvary
And there He suffered for me,
Pierced His hands and feet, a sign for all eternity
When He was suffering for me.
He bore my sins in His own body on the tree,
All my shame and sorrow, all my gilt and penalty,
There's no more to pay because my Saviour set me free!
When He was dying for me.

Soon I''ll see my Saviour where the Angels kneel and bow
Where He is pleading for me,
There's no need of sun nor moon, for He's the glory now
And He is pleading for me.
Where the cruel thorns had made a crown about His head
Where the nails had peirced Him, and where his blood was shed,
There is strength and power Christ is risen from the dead,,
And he is coming for me.

Thanks for this. I didn't know of the 4th verse. I am considering a YouTube upload but a bit camera shy . Will practice to polish performance.

Hi Paul,
We'll be looking forward to your performance.
Please post the youtube link when you get
over your camera shyness. It is wonderful to
have the music to the lyrics here on the site.

Please sing this and put it on You tube. I heard it years ago sung by a guy whose name I have forgotten at the Keswick convention UK. It was around 1965. The words are beautiful.

This was sung by Tim Buckley who I believe was connected with the Eric Hutchins Crusades many years ago.
