I Have Been There

Mark Schultz

Lyrics

In a room without a view, a new mother smiles and holds

The tiny fingers of her brand new baby girl.

Her husband takes her by the hand, so unsure about the future

Have no money can they make it in this world?

And they pray, Lord all we have to give is love

Then they heard a gentle voice like an echo from above,

I have been there. I know what fear is all about.

Yes, I have been there and I'm standing with you now.

I have been there

And I came to build the bridge oh so this road could lead you home.

Oh I have been there.

He's been a pastor twenty years

But tonight he sits alone and broken hearted in the corner of the church

He tried to change a fallen world

With his words and with his wisdom but it seems like it is only getting worse

And he cries, Oh Lord I just don't understand

Then he felt the hand of grace, and he heard a voice that said

I have been there, I know what pain is all about

Yes I have been there, and I'm standing with you now

I have been there, and I came to build a bridge

Oh so this road could lead you home

Oh I have been there.

An older man up on a hill

Holding flowers but he can't hold back the tears.

Oh he has come to say goodbye.

He thinks about the life she lived,

Thinks about how hard it's been to live without her

Sixty years right by his side

And he cries, oh Lord I loved her till the end

And he heard a gentle voice say you'll see her once again

I have been there

I know what sorrow's all about

Yes I have been there and I'm standing with you now

I have been there, and I came to build a bridge

Oh so this road could lead her home, the road could lead her home

Oh I have been there, You know I overcame the cross, yes I have been there

So her life would not be lost

Oh I have been there, and I came to build

A bridge so this road could lead you home

The road could lead you home

Oh I have been there

Yes I have been there
