WHAT YOU TOOK FROM ME


WHAT YOU TOOK FROM ME
By: Cindy Feeman

This is a title of a song by the Whisnants. I have sung it many times as a special and I came across it again the other day. What a perfect time of the year for this song. I remember the first time I heard the song, how much it spoke to my heart. I love it still today and I've been playing it over and over. I hope the words will bless you and allow you to see how blessed we are for the things He took away!


Lord I come today to thank you
But not for things I've ever mentioned here before
Not for blessings you have given
or the Joys you promised are in store
So As I bow before you
Give me the words to express my deepest thanks
Not for what You've given
But Lord, for what You took away



You took my guilt and shame
and all my sinful blame became as yours
You opened wide your hands
and as a guilty man you wore my crown of thorns
You took the death I'd earned
and all that I deserved on Calvary
Lord thanks for what You've given
but most of all
thanks for what you took from me


Father please forgive me for all the times I failed to mention this before
I've been so concerned with treasures
Went so far as to even ask for more
But you've shown me lord what's precious
are not the things you've given me today
For their worth to me is nothing when compared to what you took away


You took my guilt and shame
and all my sinful blame became as yours
You opened wide your hands
and as a guilty man you wore my crown of thorns
You took the death I'd earned
and all that I deserved on Calvary
Lord thanks for what You've given
but most of all
thanks for what you took from me
