One Songwriter’s Explanation of John 3:16

Sometimes I get in one of my “Nobody cares about me; nobody likes me” moods. I know that isn’t true, but it doesn’t seem to matter. Sometimes it gets dark anyway. Well today I heard this song sung by Third Day:

I’ve heard it said that a man would climb a mountain
Just to be with the one He loves
How many times has He broken that promise
It has never been done
And I’ve never climbed the highest mountain
But I walked the hill of Calvary

Just to be with you, I’ll do anything
There’s no price I would not pay
And just to be with you, I’ll give everything
And I would give my life away

And I’ve heard it said that a man would swim the ocean
Just to be with the one He loves
All of those dreams are an empty emotion
It can never be done
I’ve never swam the deepest ocean
But I walked upon the raging sea

Just to be with you, I’ll do anything
There’s no price I would not pay
And just to be with you, I’ll give everything
And I would give my life away

And I know that you don’t understand
The fullness of My love
How I died upon the cross for your sins
And I know that you don’t realize
How much that I gave you
And I promise, I would do it all again

And just to be with You, I’ve done everything
There’s no price I did not pay no
Just to be with You, I gave everything
Yes, I gave my life away, I gave my life away

Just to be with You
Oh, just to be with You
Oh, just to be with You
