    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
