[G]All alone in this [C]cruel world of sin
I have [G]fought for [D7]Jesus but in [G]vain
In my fight o’er the [C]dear lamb of God
They con[G]demned Him and [D7]tried to erase His [G]name

They shout in mockery and [C]sneer the son of God
As they [G]smote Him and [D7]nailed Him to the [G]tree
A little bird circled [C]round His crown of thorns
To dry the [G]tears that He [D7]shed for you and [G]me

Jesus [D7]wept and the tears that He [G]shed
Left the [D7]stain of sorrow on my [G]heart
For our [C]sins tricked the world that we’ll [G]regret
We’ll pay the [D7]price cause Jesus [G]wept

With a heart lie a [C]pail with it rosy
Asked His [G]father in [D7]heaven up [G]above
Forgive them Lord for they [C]know not what they do
Grant me the [G]power to [D7]save the ones I [G]love

But He still [D7]weeps and the tears that He [G]shed
Leave their [D7]stains of sorrow on my [G]heart
For our [C]sinned stricken world that we’ll [G]regret
We’ll pay the [D7]price cause Jesus [G]wept

Jesus [D7]wept and the tears that He [G]shed
Left their [D7]stains of sorrow on my [G]heart
For our [C]sinned stricken world that we’ll [G]regret
We’ll pay the [D7]price cause Jesus [G]wept

We’ll pay the [D7]price cause Jesus [G]wept[/chordpress]
