There Was Jesus

Album: Rescue Story (2019)
Charted: 108
  • Every time I try to make it on my own
    Every time I try to stand, I start to fall
    And all those lonely roads that I have traveled on
    There was Jesus

    When the life I built came crashing to the ground
    When the friends I had were nowhere to be found
    I couldn't see it then but I can see it now
    There was Jesus

    In the waiting, in the searching
    In the healing, in the hurting
    Like a blessing buried in the broken pieces
    Every minute, every moment
    Where I've been or where I'm going
    Even when I didn't know it
    Or couldn't see it
    There was Jesus

    For this man who needs amazing kind of grace (mm-hmm)
    For forgiveness and a price I couldn't pay (mm-hmm, mm-hmm)
    I'm not perfect so I thank God every day
    There was Jesus
    There was Jesus

    In the waiting, in the searching
    In the healing, in the hurting
    Like a blessing buried in the broken pieces
    Every minute, every moment
    Where I've been or where I'm going
    Even when I didn't know it
    Or couldn't see it

    There was Jesus
    On the mountains
    In the valleys
    There was Jesus
    In the shadows
    Of the alleys

    There was Jesus
    In the fire, in the flood
    There was Jesus
    Always is and always was, oh

    No, I never walk alone
    Never walk alone
    You're always there

    In the waiting, in the searching
    In the healing, in the hurting
    Like a blessing buried in the broken pieces
    Every minute, every moment
    Where I've been or where I'm going
    Even when I didn't know it
    Or couldn't see it
    There was Jesus

    There was Jesus
    There was Jesus
    There was Jesus Writer/s: Casey Beathard, Jonathan Smith, Zach Williams
