Wounded For Me

This hymn speaks of Christ’s passive and active obedience, that has purchased redemption for us. The entire redemptive work of Christ is summarized in this hymn – His Suffering, Death, Burial, Resurrection and Second Coming.

Lyrics: 1 – W. G. Ovens, 2-5 – Gladys Westcott Roberts
Music: W. G. Ovens

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.

    How about one more verse to this beautiful hymn:

    Living in me, Living in me,
    Guiding, Empowering, Christ lives in me,
    I have been crucified, His life you see,
    I am no longer, He’s living in me.
