Sympathizing Jesus

1) You never said suffering wouldn’t come our way
You never said we wouldn’t be betrayed
You didn’t say we would’t need to call
You never said our hearts would not break
You never said we wouldn’t suffer for His sake
You didn’t say a sparrow wouldn’t fall

Ch) You said a sparrow wouldn’t fall
Without the Father
And your ears were open to our cries
And in our sufferings
We could find sweeter things
Like the fellowship
Close to your wounded side
We can follow the feet
That were nailed to a cross
We can hold to a hand
That was wounded for us
We can look into eyes
That have shed tears before
And we can trust in a heart
That is breaking with ours

Bridge) Sympathizing Jesus
Great High Priest
Who is touched with the feeling
Of our infirmities
We approach Your throne boldly
For mercy in our time of need
We spread out our petitions
We’re partakers of Your sufferings

You said, that in our sufferings
We could find sweeter things
Like the fellowship
Close to your wounded side
Help us follow your feet
That were nailed to a cross
We can hold to a hand
That was wounded for us
We look into eyes
That have shed tears before
Help us trust in Your heart
That is breaking with ours
