Blood & Tears

It’s raining outside, dark and cold
You’re crying inside, weeping alone
Bleeding from a wounded heart
Your life has been torn apart
You’re crying inside, feeling alone

In the rain, two thousand years ago
I faced the cross, crying alone
Bleeding from a crown of thorns
For you, my flesh ripped and torn
I faced the cross, dying alone

Chorus:
Oh, I died for you then
In the rain, in blood and tears
How I cry for you now
Will you let me draw near?

In the rain, two thousand years ago
I lay entombed, my torn flesh cold
For you, my child, I gave my life
Then rose from the grave, fully alive
At an empty tomb, a stone was rolled

Chorus:
Oh, I died for you then
In the rain, in blood and tears
How I cry for you now
Will you let me draw near?

By my blood, your sins are atoned
Now, my child, you’re never alone
Healing flows from my pierced heart
I will walk with you in the dark
Now, my child, you’re never alone

Chorus 2:
Oh, I died for you then
In the rain, in blood and tears
How I long for you now
Please let me draw near.

Final Chorus (2x):
Oh, I died for you then
In the rain, in blood and tears
How I long to hold you close
And wipe away your tears
And wipe away your tears.

Instrumental/Trailer: Let me hold you close & wipe away your tears… (repeat, fade away)
