Then You Laid Down Your Life - Song History
Words & Music
Dennis Jernigan
July 6, 2015

After the Supreme Court's ruling making
same sex marriage legal in the US, I was
heartbroken as I realized that our nation
had bought into the lie that is contrary to
God’s design for mankind. Soon after,
Matt Oser, a friend, suggested I make a
video series geared toward educating the
church as to how to respond to the advent
of homosexuality being so accepted in
our culture in spite of how contrary that
behavior is to God’s design. As I
contemplated such an undertaking,
I soon became literally overwhelmed
with fear at the possible repercussions
from those who call me a hater.
This song came as I fought through
the lies and fiery arrows of the enemy
to the Truth of Jesus Christ. Jesus laid
down His life for me I will do the same
for Him.

Dennis Jernigan

For whoever wishes to save his life
will lose it, but whoever loses his life
for My sake and the gospel's will save it
.” Jesus

Mark 8:35 NASB

Verse
I was blinded 
My heart's eyes could not see 
I was blind as could be 
I was blinded 
So blinded by me 

Chorus
Then You laid down Your life! 
Laid down Your life for me! 
Then You laid down Your life! 
Laid down Your life because You wanted me! 
Then You laid down Your life! 
Laid down Your life and shed Your blood for me! 
Then You laid down Your life 
And gave my sight to me! 

Verse
Left unhearing to the sound of Your voice 
I was deaf, could not hear 
Love was silenced 
I was made deaf by fear! 

Chorus
Then You laid down Your life! 
Laid down Your life for me! 
Then You laid down Your life! 
Laid down Your life because You wanted me! 
Then You laid down Your life! 
Laid down Your life and shed Your blood for me! 
Then You laid down Your life
And took the fear from me!

Verse
My emotions left me wounded and numb 
Hidden deep in my pain 
I was wounded 
So wounded by shame! 

Chorus
Then You laid down Your life! 
Laid down Your life for me! 
Then You laid down Your life! 
Laid down Your life because You wanted me! 
Then You laid down Your life! 
Laid down Your life and shed Your blood for me! 
Then You laid down Your life 
And took the shame from me!

Chorus
I will lay down my life!
Lay down my life for You! 
I will lay down my life! 
Lay down my life because I love You! 
I will lay down my life Life You gave Your life! 
I give my life for You! 
I will lay down my life 
Because I love You
