God Didn't Come To Save The Angels
Possum Run Music/Centergy Music
An old man passed by a storefront mission,
Where a young man was standing outside.
"I know you're just passing through, but we're about to get started.
Would you like to come in for a while?"
He said, "I'd like to son, but you're asking the wrong man.
It's been twenty years since I've been to church.
I guess I quit going when my family left me,
Cause who needs a drunk out of work?"
Then a church bell rang somewhere in the distance,
And a moment of silence passed by.
Then the young man spoke with the voice of compassion,
Through the tear that had formed in his eyes.
Saying God didn't come to save the angels.
If He did, there'd be nothing to do.
But He saw a world filled with imperfect people,
And He gave His life for He knew
That He had to save all these imperfect people.
People just like me and you.
To the unwed mother, or the junkie who's homeless.
To life's broken and battered and bruised.
From the slums in the cities
To the poor mountain family,
Each soul is worth too much to lose.
And sometimes the church forgets we have a mission,
To reach those who are hurting and lost.
For Jesus loved all the despised and rejected
So much that He died on a cross
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
