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.


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."


Lagos, Nigeria

Wounded for me. Dying for me. Risen for me. Pleading for me. Coming for me. It is all about me and you.... before He came, after He came and even when He left it is still about me and you! Oh wonderful Saviour! I love You.

I love the song I hum it and keep it in my head all day long.

No words can adequately expressed what my Saviour, Master and Friend endured to save a wretched like me. I am eternally grateful. Let's this hymn be preserved for all time so generation to come will appreciate the impact of it. Lord we praise and honour Your holy name.

Joyce Ku

A simple hymn that captures all of Christian theology, ethos and hope that even a child can appreciate, love and understand. Long may it be sung, enjoyed and believed.


Oxford, United Kingdom

This hymn tells the story of love and mercy. May we encourage each other in this as we live here among unbelief and materialism
