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...

Thanks for sharing.  Growing up my parents were big Johnny Cash fans.  I think I'll use this as our devotional at Easter this year.
