10 I Was There

1. I was standing in the stable
Right there in Bethlehem
Here the Son of God was born
To free sin-laden men
I sang some songs about His birth
With those who knew this truth
This miracle that God performed
He did for me and you

(Chorus)
I was there, I was there
Walked the land that Jesus trod
Saw the sights that I had only
Been able to dream of
I walked the shore of Galilee
Spent time in Bethlehem
Then entered God’s Majestic city
Of Jerusalem

2. I was riding in a fishing boat
On the Sea of Galilee
Where Jesus walked on water
Made the storm a gentle breeze
Here is where some fishermen
Left work to follow Christ
Becoming His disciples who
Would spread God’s Words of Life

(Chorus)

3. I was standing in the garden
Of old Gethsemane
The place where Jesus prayed before
His walk to Calvary
Among the olive trees I sat
My mind ran back through time
Thinking of His sacrifice
As I took the bread and wine

(Chorus)

4. I went down inside the dungeon
Of Caiaphas estate
Christ was mocked and beaten here
And men spit in His face
I walked the road He traveled on
I Was There
When He carried His cross
Giving up His life for us
So He could save the lost

(Chorus)

5. I stood inside the garden tomb
It lies empty today
For Jesus rose up long ago
God planned it all that way
Forgiveness of our sins was bought
For all who’d come to Him
So one day we could enter in
The New Jerusalem

(Chorus)
I was there, I was there
Walked the land that Jesus trod
Saw the sights that I had only
Been able to dream of
I walked the shore of Galilee
Spent time in Bethlehem
Then entered God’s Majestic city
Of Jerusalem

(Chorus 2)
I’ll be there, I’ll be there
In that land where Jesus walks
See the sights that I have only
Been able to dream of
I’ll walk along the Crystal Sea
My life with Him I’ll spend
That day when I will enter in
The New Jerusalem

(Chorus 3)
We’ll be there, We’ll be there
In that land where Jesus walks
See the sights that we have only
Been able to dream of
We’ll walk along the Crystal Sea
Our lives with Him we’ll spend
That day when we will enter in
The New Jerusalem
