Testo della canzone Jesus, Friend of Sinners (Casting Crowns), tratta dall'album Come to the Well

Jesus, Friend of Sinners - Casting Crowns

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 trippin' over me
Always lookin' around, but never lookin' 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 of our pointing fingers
Oh, 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
Yeah, yeah

Jesus, friend of sinners, the one who's 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 love like You did?

Oh, Jesus, friend of sinners
Open our eyes to the world at the end of our pointing fingers
And 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

You love every lost cause, You reach for the outcast (every outcast)
For the leper and the lame; they're the reason that You came
Lord, I was that lost cause (I was that lost cause) and I was the outcast (and I was the outcast)
But You died for sinners just like me, a grateful leper at Your feet

'Cause You are good, oh, You are good and Your love endures forever
Oh, You are good, You are good and Your love, endures forever
Oh, You are good, yes, You are good and Your love endures forever
Oh, You are good, oh, You are good and Your love endures forever

Jesus, friend of sinners
Open our eyes to the world at the end of our pointing fingers
But 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
