"Cry Out To Jesus" as written by and Mark Lee Mac Powell....
To everyone who's lost someone they love
Long before it was their time
You feel like the days you had were not enough
When you said goodbye

And to all of the people with burdens and pains
Keeping you back from your life
You believe that there's nothing and there is no one
Who can make it right

There is hope for the helpless
Rest for the weary
And love for the broken heart
And there is grace and forgiveness
Mercy and healing
He'll meet you wherever you are
Cry out to Jesus
Cry out to Jesus

For the marriage that's struggling just to hang on
They've lost all of their faith in love
And they've done all they can to make it right again, still it's not enough

For the ones who can't break the addictions and chains
You try to give up but you come back again
Just remember that you're not alone in your shame
And your suffering

There is hope for the helpless
Rest for the weary
And love for the broken heart
And there is grace and forgiveness
Mercy and healing
He'll meet you wherever you are
Cry out to Jesus

When you're lonely
And it feels like the whole world is falling on you
You just reach out, you just cry out to Jesus
Cry to Jesus

To the widow who suffers from being alone
Wiping the tears from her eyes
And for the children around the world without a home
Say a prayer tonight

There is hope for the helpless
Rest for the weary
And love for the broken heart
And there is grace and forgiveness
Mercy and healing
He'll meet you wherever you are

There is hope for the helpless
Rest for the weary
And love for the broken heart
And there is grace and forgiveness
Mercy and healing
He'll meet you wherever you are
Cry out to Jesus
Cry out to Jesus
Oh, cry out to Jesus
Cry out to Jesus

    General CommentPerhaps the greatest Third Day song ever written. This song gives hope to so many who might doubt or despair. Just hearing it, you know there is a power in what is said. All you have to do is cry out and you are no longer alone. My mom first introduced me to this song, and she wants it to be played at her funeral. I can't think of a better message to leave people when you go. He is there through all the suffering, for everyone willing to accept.

    General CommentI love this song. It is touching and it is beautiful, and every time I hear it, it brings tears to my eyes. Thinking of all those times that are difficult in our lives, we have Jesus. He died for us and He hears us, bears our pain - with us.

    One day, while sitting in my dining room, I was crying thinking of my brother who died in a car accident. My heart was broken. I heard this song play. Heard it before, but it was different this time.

    These lines of the song came on and touched my heart. I felt as if my brother, who is now with Jesus, said to me - in my heart, no more, Faith. No more. No more pain. No more sorrow. No more addiction and pain...
    For the ones who can't break the addictions and chains
    You try to give up but you come back again
    Just remember that you're not alone in your shame
    And your suffering

    Cry Out to Jesus. He's with you. He hears you, and with each step you take, He carries you when you ask Him to...

    General CommentThis song is amazing. I saw them live a few days ago and i was disappointed they didn't play this,,, BUT in a magazine it said that each verse was written for different people. Like, he wrote them for different people that he knew in his own personal life you know. I think this is something for sure that all can relate to, no matter what walk of life they travel. Loss of love, marriages failing, addiction, it all parallels who we are as people and shows us that we need a Savior. It really does.

    General CommentI do not understand why my son was taken from me at such a young age of 18. I refuse to give in to Satan while i mourn, my faith in God is all I have left. It's been less than a week,all I can do is cry out to Jesus. Will I ever stop crying?
