Inspired by “The Great Divorce” (C.S. Lewis, 1945)

The Bleeding Charity
Free for the taking
A fragrant offering
That cost You everything

O Lamb of God that was slain
To take away my sin
Sometimes my heart feels like lead
My trains of thought don’t connect
My stubborn flesh, it rebels,
And I’m the hypocrite – given to extremes
But O Jesus
You’re my Bleeding Charity

O Jesus, O Jesus
O Jesus, Lord Jesus

You have been my Friend
Ever faithful to the end
And You have broken my chains,
And You have lifted my shame
And You have given me a new name
And adopted me into Your family
O Jesus
You’re my Bleeding Charity

After all the times we’ve been together
And after all the ups and downs we’ve been through
After all this time we’re still together
And it’s forever that I intend to love You

But I’ve just got to be real with You
You know who I am
Surely nothing is hidden from Your sight
Your eyes of fire
O Jesus
My bleeding sacrifice.

A living sacrifice
Mine for the giving
To count the cost and pay the price
For Your reproach and Your pain

And I suppose I’m as close
To You as I choose to be
To keep my eyes fixed on Thee
And to take up my cross daily
And keep my heart and my mind clean
From the treachery
All around, so deep within me
O Jesus, I need Your Bleeding Charity

After all the times we’ve been together
And after all the ups and downs we’ve been through
After all this time we’re still together
And it’s forever that I intend to love You

But I’ve just got to be real with You
You know who I am
Surely nothing is hidden from Your sight
Your eyes of fire
O Jesus,
My bleeding sacrifice

O Jesus
O Jesus
Lord Jesus
You’re my Bleeding Charity …
