Jesus people, loving people

You Walked Among the People

Watch the video

The Journey album logoIt’s amazing to think how down-to-earth Jesus was. The son of God, out among the people, and “the common people heard him gladly”. ‘Jesus Army’ has been our outreach identity for many years. Jesus calls us to be out there among the people, demonstrating his love, being a friend to everyone, saints and sinners alike.

This is the tenth song from our live album ‘The Journey‘.

 

Lyrics:

You walked among the people,
The ordinary people,
You dined with them and laughed and set them free.
You kissed the unlovable,
And hugged every untouchable,
Brought hope to all the ones who could not see.

And Your love, Your love is greater still (×3)
Than we will ever know,
Than we will ever know.

2. Religion was offence to You,
The fake façade You saw right through,
Revealed the truth about its pride and shame.
What You require is brokenness,
Not hardness or pretentiousness;
Your love prefers humility to fame.

And Your love, Your love is greater still (×3)
Than we will ever know,
Than we will ever know.

3. Now we’re Your body, we’re Your bride
You love through us, walk by our side,
But Jesus, O how often do we fall,
Slip back into our man-made ways,
Get stuck in those religious days!
So come, now, Holy Spirit, free us all!

And Your love, Your love is greater still (×3)
Than we will ever know,
Than we will ever know.
