INVITED

God loves the unlovely, gives worth the unworthy,
The folks who don’t matter to anyone.
It’s for people like that and for sinners like me
God sent to the cross His only Son.

God loves the self-righteous, the angry, the jealous,
Even those who are perfect in their very own eyes.
There’s no one on earth who is righteous, no one!
Don’t for one second believe Satan’s lies!

Christ shouted His love as He stretched out His arms
Embracing each one who would come!
Unlovely, unworthy, but saved by His Grace!
It’s at the cross that new life has begun.

Bag-ladies and bums are invited to dine
At the banquet feast at the foot of His Throne.
We may be surprised, who’ll be all dressed in white
Clothed in His righteousness, now His very own!.

There’s a place at the table for you and for me
With all our loved ones who have gone on before.
Oh my friend, come! You have been invited!
Please make the choice to walk through The Door.

We are save through the Grace of our Savior Jesus. And through His grace alone. :)
