Lyrics to Jesus, friend of sinners:
Jesus, friend of sinners/We have strayed so far away/We cut down people in Your name/But the sword was never ours to swing/Jesus, friend of sinners/The truth’s become so hard to see/The world is on their way to You/But they’re tripping over me/Always looking around but never looking up/I’m so double minded/A plank-eyed saint with dirty hands/And a heart divided/Oh Jesus, friend of sinners/Open our eyes to the world/At the end our pointing fingers/Let our hearts be led by mercy/Help us reach with open hearts and open doors/Oh Jesus, friend of sinners/Break our hearts for what breaks Yours/Jesus, friend of sinners
The One whose writing in the sand/Made the righteous turn away/And the stones fall from their hands/Help us to remember/We are all the least of these/Let the memory of Your mercy
Bring Your people to their knees/Nobody knows what we’re for/Only what we’re against/When we judge the wounded/What if we put down our signs/Crossed over the lines/And loved like You did/You love every lost cause/You reach for the outcast/For the leper and the lame/They’re the reason that You came/Lord, I was that lost cause/And I was the outcast/But You died for sinners just like me/A grateful leper at Your feet/‘Cause You are good/You are good/And Your love endures forever/And I was the lost cause/And I was the outcast/You died for sinners just like me/A grateful leper at Your feet
