Behind the Songs: He Bled
He bled for you
He bled for me
Oh how He wants us all to see
You can’t escape the love
He’s freely given us
He bled for you
‘Cause His Word has changed our lives
And we want you to know this profound truth
That Jesus came to the earth for you
Please believe this Word too
Romans 5:1-11 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. 6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! 10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life! 11 Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
“Do you have any upbeat, happy songs?” asked an inquisitive family member. Her question got us to thinking, “Hmmm … do we have a song that makes you want to move to the groove?” So we began pondering that and trying to create a little jive. Within no time, the Lord gave Kert a musical melody on the piano. He played the melody for weeks … and weeks … and weeks as we waited on the Lord to give us words. We would play with different words and nothing ever felt “right.” Finally late one night the Lord brought the words and music together. Bam! It was done, and we knew immediately that we wanted it to be the opening song on the record.
To our surprise, He Bled was not only the first song on our record, but it also became our first song on the radio. We are thankful that it made it to the airwaves. We have received a lot of positive feedback about how it is a favorite on our record! We had someone find us on Facebook and tell us: “I am so excited. I finally have been shown by KGNZ today who sang my favorite song — He Bled. I cry every time I hear it and sing along with you both!” We’ve been told many times about how people can’t get the song out of their heads and they love the groove. Praise the Lord!!!
Here is one of our first times to ever share it with the world: (This seems like an eternity ago!)
