Because Here I Am

Updated on September 11, 2012

On a holy night so long far ago

I came to be born

Just for you

As a baby so lonely and helpless.

And here I am.


Do you know it was with you on my mind and in my heart that I came to be?

Here I am.

My arms are open wide to receive you.

You are loved by me and that is why I was born to die.

I was born to die so that you might be with our Father forever.

So here I am.


Here I am. This is where I have always been.

Do you see me hurting with you each time you cry?

Do you care when I cry because of your sin?

Won't you acknowledge me?

Here I am.


Here I am. I am the Savior wanting to be your friend.

I want to give you new life because I love you.

Take up my yoke. It is easier than the one you have made for yourself.

Do you realize I knew you would reject me before I was born to die?

Yet, here I am.


I knew you before you knew this world.

I knew your heart would be hard and your love for me would be cold.

But here I am because I was born to die because I love you.

Here I am.
