Scoundrels and Sinners

I have looked at pornography
I have committed adultery
I have been the drunkard, the liar and the thief
And while I was that sinner Christ died for me

I have judged the brother next to me
I have lived my life as a Pharisee
I’ve fasted and prayed in a spiritual parade for all of the world to see
And while I was that sinner Christ died for me

Oh, what manner of love that we should be called
Children of the Most High God
Oh, what measure of love You’ve lavished on us
You take harlots and calls us Your own

Here is the question: How does a sinner like me
Enter into the kingdom of God on that day and obtain Your mercy

You take scoundrels and sinners and low lives and failures
And make us the joy of Your crown
You take the arrogant and prideful, self-righteous, false-humble
You tell the tax collector come down (and you stay at his house)
And none of us deserved it but Your life you gave it
You gladly laid it down
And all our filthy garments are now red as scarlet

Washed in the blood of the Lamb
Jesus please help us understand
Jesus please help us understand

That all our filthy garments are now red as scarlet
Washed in the blood of the Lamb.
