Wounded for me, wounded for me

Wounded for me, wounded for me,
There on the cross He was wounded for me;
Gone my transgressions, and now I am free,
All because Jesus was wounded for me.
Dying for me, dying for me,
There on the cross He was dying for me;
Now in His death my redemption I see,
All because Jesus was dying for me.
Risen for me, risen for me,
Up from the grave He has risen for me;
Now evermore from death's sting I am free,
All because Jesus has risen for me.
Living for me, living for me,
Up in the skies He is living for me;
Daily He's pleading and praying for me,
All because Jesus is living for me.
Coming for me, coming for me,
Soon in the air He is coming for me;
Then with what joy His dear face I shall see,
Oh, how I praise Him! He's coming for me.

Just got to know this song through a devotional. And just learning the tune too. It's a beautiful song!

I am always broken by the tune and lyrics of this song.

It is as if it were composed yesterday, always fresh in my heart. I can't stop worshipping me. May God use it to transform as many lives as it pleases Him.

Love this old hymn, I sang this when I was young. What a gift his song gives us, it covers all what Jesus has done for us and will do. Singing this focuses on Him.

I just remembered this hymn this season. I sung it long ago while in Zimbabwe. Was looking for it my hymnals but it was not found. So I went online I found this website. Thanks so much. It’s such a touching hymn going deep in my heart in this difficult season I am crossing this time. Keep praying for me and my sickly spouse.

God bless!

I can't stop crying when I sang this song again this morning. We sang it yesterday in my choir and woke up again this morning with the song in my spirit. Oh Jesus Thank you for accepting to be wounded for me. Thank you for dying for me, Thank you for living and coming for me. Thank you for revealing yourself again and again to us. Thank you for your death, burial and resurrection has brought us real salvation. Please Lord help me to always remember you died for me, and your death shouldn't be a waste in Jesus name Amen

My Gram would sing this song. Warmed my heart to hear it again, thank you.



He died to make me a citizen of the kingdom of God

A great privilege to be joint heirs with my Lord and King and my big brother Jesus Christ

This is beyond human understanding

Praise God, , He was wounded for me

Yes, He died, rose and is living for me

So true, , He is pleading for me

Surely, He is coming for me

But the truth is--- all was done to restore me to the Father's original purpose for His creation:

“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. ” Revelation 4:11

beautiful hymn

I feel that it would be appropriate to add an extra verse between 4 & 5

"Living in me, living in me,

Here in my heart, He is living in me

Daily He's making my heart space His


All because Jesus is living in me."
