Jesus, Friend of Sinners

Casting Crowns


Jesus Friend of sinners
We have strayed so far away
We cut down people in your nameBut 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 YouBut they're tripping over me
Always looking around but never looking up
I'm so double minded
A plank eyed saint with dirty handsAnd a heart divided
Oh Jesus, friend of sinners
Open our eyes to world
At the end of our pointing fingers
Let our hearts be led by mercy
Help us reach with open hearts
And open doors
Oh Jesus, friend of sinnersBreak our hearts for what breaks Yours, yeah
Oh Jesus, friend of sinners
The one who's writing in the sand
Make the righteous turn awayAnd the stones fall from their hands
Help us to remember
We are all the least of these
Let the memory of Your mercyBring Your people to their knees
No one knows what we're for only against
When we judge the wounded
What if we put down our signs crossed
Over the lines and loved like You did
Oh Jesus, friend of sinners
Open our eyes to world
At the end of our pointing fingersLet our hearts be led by mercy
Help us reach with open hearts
And open doors
Oh Jesus, friend of sinnersBreak our hearts for what breaks Yours
You love every lost
'Cause you reach for the outcast
For the leper and the lameThey're the reason that You came
Lord, I was that lost
'Cause and I was the outcast
But you died for sinners just like meA grateful leper at Your feet
'Cause You are good, You are good
And Your love endures forever
You are good, You are goodAnd Your love endures forever
You are good, You are good
And Your love endures forever
You are good, You are good
And Your love endures forever
Oh Jesus, friend of sinners
Open our eyes to world
At the end of 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
And I was the lost
'Cause and I was the outcast, yeah
You died for sinners just like me
A grateful leper at Your feet
