Jesus, Faithful Friend of Sinners

“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!
