Mark Schultz Lyrics

I Have Been There 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
And no money can they make it in this world?

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