Jesus, Friend Of Sinners Lyrics

We have strayed so far away
We cut down people in your name
But the sword was never ours to swing

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 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, yeah

Oh Jesus, friend of sinners
The one who's writing in the sand
Make 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

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 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

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
You are good, You are good
And 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

rob- i don't see anything about being the devil, and not telling people they're sinners...its not talking about toleration...all i see is it talking about Jesus calling us to be humble and love the lost.
