Luke 15:2
"And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying,
This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them."

          Sinners Jesus will receive;
          Sound this word of grace to all
          Who the heav'nly pathway leave,
          All who linger, all who fall.

            Chorus
            Sing it o'er and o'er again;
            Christ receiveth sinful men;
            Make the message clear and plain:
            Christ receiveth sinful men.

          Come, and He will give you rest;
          Trust Him, for His Word is plain;
          He will take the sinfulest;
          Christ receiveth sinful men.

            Chorus
            Sing it o'er and o'er again;
            Christ receiveth sinful men;
            Make the message clear and plain:
            Christ receiveth sinful men.

          Now my heart condemns me not,
          Pure before the law I stand;
          He who cleansed me from all spot,
          Satisfied its last demand.

            Chorus
            Sing it o'er and o'er again;
            Christ receiveth sinful men;
            Make the message clear and plain:
            Christ receiveth sinful men.

          Christ receiveth sinful men,
          Even me with all my sin;
          Purged from every spot and stain,
          Heav'n with Him I enter in.

            Chorus
            Sing it o'er and o'er again;
            Christ receiveth sinful men;
            Make the message clear and plain:
            Christ receiveth sinful men.
