Somebody Died For Me Memorial Day Reminder

With the fun and excitement of Memorial Day, I wanted to post a song that really hits home. Somebody Died for Me has a double meaning of those who have died and given their life in sacrifice for this country but it also puts the emphasis on how Christ gave His life for us. The lyrics are below and there is a video as well. Hopefully it is a blessing to someone.


He was a troubled kid in and out of jail
When his daddy said this is the last time I’ll pay bail
He enlisted in the army and they sent him to Iraq
He was a different man when he came back
Somebody said the army must’ve whipped you into shape
But he said that’s not the reason that I’ve changed

Somebody died for me (before I even asked for help)
Gave his life for me (when I couldn’t save myself)
I cannot live the way I lived or be the way I was
Every day’s a gift to me because (somebody died for me)

Now they fold the flag and attach a silver star
While the grieving mother leans against his arm
Then he stands before the family and does his best to tell
How he survived the night his best friend fell
He says no one who knew him was surprised he died that way
He tried to live for Jesus oh he always used to say

And I don’t wanna waste a moment
Of the time I have left
With every breath I'm given
God help me not forget
