I was hungry, You were bread for my soul,
I was thirsty and You gave living water,
You were my shelter when I had no place to go;
Refrain: (after each verse)
That’s why sometimes I just want to praise You, Sometimes just to speak Your name,
Sometimes I just want to thank You, Without asking You for a thing;
Oh, sometimes I lift my hands to You, And sometimes all I do is cry,
Everything that I have I owe to You, Lord, And Calvary’s the reason why.
Lord, when I think of the price You paid for me,
Then the trials on earth, they just seem like nothing,
When they’re compared to dark Calvary.
But you know sometimes I just want to go home;
Friends and family I have here, and their love I hold so dear,
But you know sometimes I just want to go home
Everything that I have I owe to You, Lord,
And Calvary’s the reason why.
