Wouldn’t Be Here

I wouldn’t be here
If your blood was kept
I wouldn’t be here
if there was still the debt
And I’ll never know the cost
And I may never feel the loss
But i know I woudn’t be here
I’d be dead

I wouldn’t be here
But for sacrifice
I wouldn’t be here
But you paid the price
And you walked along the road
Only love and courage go
And if you hadn’t I wouldn’t be here
I’d be dead

No greater love has man than this
Than he laid down his life for his friends

I wouldn’t be here
If you hadn’t loved
I wouldn’t be here
If you’d turned and run
Oh and if you’d turned away
From the price that needed paying
I know I wouldn’t be here
I’d be dead
