Verse 1
Have you read the story of the Cross,
Where Jesus bled and died;
Where your debt was paid by His precious blood
That flowed from His wounded side?

Chorus
He died of a broken heart for you,
He died of a broken heart;
Upon a tree, for you, for me,
He died of a broken heart

Verse 2
Have you read how they placed the crown of thorn
Upon His brow for you,
When He prayed, ''Forgive them, oh forgive;
They know not what they do?''

Chorus
He died of a broken heart for you,
He died of a broken heart;
Upon a tree, for you, for me,
He died of a broken heart

Verse 3
Have you read how He saved the dying thief
When hanging on the tree,
When he looked with pleading eyes and said,
''Dear Lord, remember Me?''

Chorus
He died of a broken heart for you,
He died of a broken heart;
Upon a tree, for you, for me,
He died of a broken heart

Verse 4
Have you read that He looked to heaven and said,
'''Tis finished?'' 'Twas for thee!
Have you ever said, ''I thank Thee, Lord,
For giving Thy life for me?''

Chorus
He died of a broken heart for you,
He died of a broken heart;
Upon a tree, for you, for me,
He died of a broken heart
