    This is a story about one of CCM's most sickly songs. The song's writer, Marsha Stevens, became America's best loved Christian lesbian, when someone gave her a pin which said, "Born Again Lesbian". Shortly thereafter, she started BALM (Born Again Lesbian Music). When she had penned this cowardly sentimentalist hymn, she had not yet revealed her lesbianism. The lyrics promote the theologically naive idea that Jesus came and died so our pain would stop entirely. The idea of which is appealing to practicing, unrepentant lesbians who believe that the way this is achieved is to stop calling sin what it is, becoming antinomian in doctrine, or some other post-modernist heresy that would likely grace the teachings of your local Episcopal church (of which there are many).

    You said you'd come and share all my sorrows
    You said you'd be there for all my tomorrows
    I came so close to sending you away
    But just like you promised, you came here to stay
    I just had to pray

    Chorus
    And Jesus said,
    "Come to the water, stand by my side
    I know you are thirsty, you won't be denied
    I felt every tear drop, when in darkness you cried
    And I strove to remind you,
    It's for those tears I died"

    Your goodness so great, I can't understand it
    And dear Lord I know now that all this was planned
    I know You're here now and always will be
    Your love loosened my chains, and in You I'm free
    But Jesus why me?

    Chorus
    And Jesus said,
    "Come to the water, stand by my side
    I know you are thirsty, you won't be denied
    I felt every tear drop, when in darkness you cried
    And I strove to remind you,
    It's for those tears I died"

    Jesus I give You, my heart and my soul
    I know now without God, I'll never be whole
    Savior, You opened all the right doors
    And I thank You and praise You from earth's humble shores
    Take me I'm Yours!

    Chorus
    And Jesus said,
    "Come to the water, stand by my side
    I know you are thirsty, you won't be denied
    I felt every tear drop, when in darkness you cried
    And I strove to remind you,
    It's for those tears I died"
