Wounded for Me

Hymn lyrics (verse 1) and Music by William G. Ovens,
Hymn lyrics (verses 2-5) by Gladys W. Roberts
Verse 1
  • Wounded for me, wounded for me,
  • There on the cross He was wounded for me;
  • Gone my transgressions, and now I am free,
  • All because Jesus was wounded for me.
Verse 2
  • Dying for me, dying for me,
  • There on the cross He was dying for me;
  • Now in His death my redemption I see,
  • All because Jesus was dying for me.
Verse 3
  • Risen for me, risen for me,
  • Up from the grave He has risen for me;
  • Now evermore from death’s sting I am free,
  • All because Jesus has risen for me.
Verse 4
  • Living for me, living for me,
  • Up in the skies He is living for me;
  • Daily He’s pleading and praying for me,
  • All because Jesus is living for me.
Verse 5
  • Coming for me, coming for me,
  • One day to earth He is coming for me;
  • Then with what joy His dear face I shall see,
  • O how I praise Him—He’s coming for me!

A critic is someone who never actually goes to the battle, yet who afterwards comes out shooting the wounded. See the link below for more info.
