Come To The Water

Does anybody know this song?
It goes something like this:
And Jesus said come to the water
stand by my side
I know you are thirsty
You won't be denied
I felt every tear drop
When in darkness you cried

Come To The Water

Hi Efren,

This is a beautiful song by Marsha J. and Russ Stevens called "For Those Tears I Died". Here are the words:

1.
You said you'd come and share all my sorrows
You said you'd be there for all my tomorrows
I came so close to sending you away
But just like you promised, you came here to stay
I just had to pray

Chorus
And Jesus said,
"Come to the water, stand by my side
I know you are thirsty, you won't be denied
I felt every tear drop, when in darkness you cried
And I strove to remind you,
It's for those tears I died"

2.
Your goodness so great, I can't understand it
And dear Lord I know now that all this was planned
I know You're here now and always will be
Your love loosened my chains, and in You I'm free
But Jesus why me?

Chorus
And Jesus said,
"Come to the water, stand by my side
I know you are thirsty, you won't be denied
I felt every tear drop, when in darkness you cried
And I strove to remind you,
It's for those tears I died"

3.
Jesus I give You, my heart and my soul
I know now without God, I'll never be whole
Savior, You opened all the right doors
And I thank You and praise You from earth's humble shores
Take me I'm Yours!

Chorus
And Jesus said,
"Come to the water, stand by my side
I know you are thirsty, you won't be denied
I felt every tear drop, when in darkness you cried
And I strove to remind you,
It's for those tears I died"

God bless,
Steve

Hi Guest,

Here's a great site that has the MIDI version of the song. The music is just as pretty as the lyrics.

Thank you so much, now I can sing the whole song to my children like my mom used to sing it to me.

The song was actually written by Cathy Harris while a student at Florida State University in the 70's. It was first titled Cathy's Song.
