Silent Before Me

Here’s a song I wrote in seminary about the Passion of Jesus Christ. Lyrics here 1


  1. You’re in the garden, thinking of me. Blood falls like water, so I could be free. Taken in the night, for the sins of my flesh. Those were my chains, Lord, on your chest.
    Jesus….You love me more…than I could imagine
    I adore…Your Sacred Heart…silent before me.
    Stretched a the pole with blood in your eyes. Skin torn to pieces so that I might rise…Whips start smashing, what do you see? Your mother and me Lord, looking to thee…
    Jesus….You love me more…than I could imagine
    I adore…Your Sacred Heart…silent before me.
    ‘Forgive them Father,’ you say from the cross. Naked and helpless, since I was lost. I’ll live forever, cuz you bore it for me. Yet you thirst for my love, Lord, so now I may say…
    Jesus….You love me more…than I could imagine
    I adore…Your Sacred Heart…silent before me.
