Lyrics

I’ve Been There by Marsha Stevens-Pino and Chip Davis <br />
<br />
You never pass an a lonely soul you fail to meet <br />
The gardener pulling weeds, the beggar on the street. <br />
The ones who seem invisible, the addicts gone astray, <br />
I never really saw them but you always stop to pray, <br />
When I asked why you always seem to care, <br />
You could only answer… <br />
<br />
<br />
I’ve been there, I’ve been there <br />
I begged to die in pain no one could share, <br />
I had the wounds, I kept the scars <br />
So I can meet them where they are. <br />
I can feel their pain, ‘cause I’ve been there. <br />
<br />
So many times I see the tears fill wounded eyes, <br />
A church has put them out, or filled their minds with lies, <br />
They feel they are invisible, their hearts have turned so hard, <br />
Abandoned by their families because of who they are. <br />
Jesus, how can you reach through such despair, <br />
Then I hear you answer… <br />
<br />
<br />
I’ve been there, I’ve been there <br />
I begged to die in pain no one could share, <br />
I felt the wounds, I took the scars <br />
I’ll meet you right where you are <br />
I can heal your pain, ‘cause I’ve been there <br />
<br />
It took the cross, it took the shame, <br />
It took the blood so they could know you felt their pain. <br />
<br />
Christ says, “Don’t leave before you say a simple prayer, <br />
You can come from death to life…’cause I’ve been there. <br />
