The very latest hymn melody by Greg Wilbur, Jesus, Faithful Friend of Sinners (10/25/14)
“The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’” Matthew 11:19a
Jesus, faithful Friend of sinners,
God incarnate, pure and sinless;
I am full of all that hinders—
Empty, lonely, lost and friendless.
Jesus, tender Shepherd faithful,
God in fullness here below;
I am anxious, dull, ungrateful,
Prone to wander, full of woe.
Jesus, Servant, precious treasure,
Gave your life my life to win.
I am vain, pursuing pleasure,
Full of hunger, self and sin.
Jesus, Savior, blessed Redeemer—
Filled with mercy overflowing,
I’m forgiven without measure—
Friend of sinners, glorious King!
-Douglas Bond (copyright, 10/25/2014)
