There Was Jesus

Every time I tried to make it on my own
Every time I tried to stand and start to fall
All those lonely roads that I have travelled on
There was Jesus

When the life I built came crashing to the ground
When the friends I had were nowhere to be found
I couldn’t see it then but I can see it now
There was Jesus

In the waiting, in the searching
In the healing and the hurting
Like a blessing buried in the broken pieces
Every minute, every moment
Of where I been and where I’m going
Even when I didn’t know it
Or couldn’t see it
There was Jesus

For this man who needs amazing kind of grace
For forgiveness at a price I couldn’t pay
I’m not perfect so I thank God every day
There was Jesus

On the mountain in the valleys (There was Jesus)
In the shadows of the alleys (There was Jesus)
In the fire, in the flood (There was Jesus)
Always is and always was
I never walk alone

  1. When we lost our youngest son on June 2, 2014 Jesus was the one who provided for us when we didn't know what we was doing. Thank you Zach for this amazing song, eventhough its been 6 years it reminds me Jesus is with us even when we don't realize it and when we are hurting.

  2. Now I am a Grandma, but when I was young, I had a lot of hard times. I was abused, brutally raped, treated like trash, thinking of taking my life. Now I look back and can see Jesus leading me through all the times I didn’t have the strength to continue, he is my strength. If he wasn’t there, I wouldn’t be here. I can feel him with me. I thank God every day for his love, compassion, grace, and forgiveness. This song sings to my soul. Thank you and thank God for putting it in your heart. God bless you and your family
