Wounded for Me Final - Duke Chapel

Wounded for me wounded for me
There on the cross He was wounded for me
Gone my transgressions and now I am free
All because Jesus was wounded for me

Perhaps this is why devotion to Christ’s wounds has traditionally been such a comfort and consolation. Rather than cringing at them, we ought to cling to the wounds of Christ. As well puts it, Within Thy wounds hide me.

Wounded for me, wounded for me Lyrics - Christian Lyrics

  1. Wounded for me, wounded for me,
    There on the cross He was wounded for me;
    Gone my transgressions, and now I am free,
    All because Jesus was wounded for me.
  2. Dying for me, dying for me,
    There on the cross He was dying for me;
    Now in His death my redemption I see,
    All because Jesus was dying for me.
  3. Risen for me, risen for me,
    Up from the grave He has risen for me;
    Now evermore from death’s sting I am free,
    All because Jesus has risen for me.
  4. Living for me, living for me,
    Up in the skies He is living for me;
    Daily He’s pleading and praying for me,
    All because Jesus is living for me.
  5. Coming for me, coming for me,
    One day to earth He is coming for me;
    Then with what joy His dear face I shall see,
    Oh, how I praise Him—He’s coming for me!

Wounded | Definition of Wounded by Merriam-Webster

Wounded for me bruised for my peace
Surely He carried our grief
Poured out for us broken for love
All of our sin laid on Him
(Was laid on Him)

We are wounded by God because in being touched by Him we have been opened to a whole new way of living and seeing the world. Opened in this way we respond by going out of ourselves, offering ourselves up. As St. John of the Cross puts it “…after wounding me;/ I went out calling you, but you were gone.” These wounds then are wounds of love, of openness to the Other.
