He Bore It All for Me

By Johnny Cash

He bore it all for me

He bore it all for me

When I was lost

A painful cross

He bore it all for me

 

He took the blame for me

He took the blame for me

He counted my wrongs

As forgotten and gone

He took the blame for me

 

He paid the price for me

He paid the price for me

A price that was high

For failure and lies

He paid the price for me

 

As he bore the pain for me

As he bore the pain for me

He spoke not a word

Not a cry was heard

He bore the pain for me

 

Yes, he bore it all for me

Yes, he bore it all for me

With nothing required

But faith in the Lord

Who bore it all for me

Country singer icon and Christian Johnny Cash was a prolific poet. A new book collected never before seen poems and fragments of songs. You can pick up the book called Forever Words.

Cash was not a bad theologian either. He bore it all for me... and you...
