Friend of Sinners

By: We Are Messengers

[Intro] Bm / D / | G / / / [Verse 1] Bm D Here I am, God, I'm the chief of sinners G Pretending that I'm not, but who am I kidding? Bm D G You already know the truth so why would I lie to You? Bm D You don't need my pride, You don't need my excuses G Without the blood of Jesus, the best of me is useless A Bm G And I'm unqualified for Heaven, but You said that I'm forgiven [Chorus] D Em Jesus, friend of sinners, Your heart is full of grace Bm G Loved me long before I wanted to change D Em Jesus, friend of sinners, Your table is where I find Bm G That someone just like me could sit by Your side [Tag 1] Bm D G The friend of sinners is a friend of mine [Verse 2] Bm D Here I am, God, with my heart expecting G Another disappointment and rejection Bm D G But You swing the doors open wide, and You say, “Come in and find” Bm D G A meal prepared of bread and wine, the body and the blood of Christ A Bm Who gave it all to give me life forever, oh [Chorus] [Tag 2] D Em The friend of sinners is a friend of mine Bm G The friend of sinners is a friend of mine [Bridge] D He's a friend of mine (Oh-ooh-oh, oh-oh-oh) Em He's a friend of mine (Oh-ooh-oh, oh-oh-oh) Bm He's a friend of mine (Oh-ooh-oh, oh-oh-oh) G He's a friend of mine (Oh-ooh-oh, oh-oh-oh) [Verse 3] Bm D Here I am, God, the chief of sinners G But hanging on a cross, it was finished Bm D You qualified me for Heaven G When You said, "Father, forgive them" [Chorus] [Tag 2] [Outro] Bm / D / | G / / /
