I Am One of Those

Ian,

Let me start by saying that I don’t get this.  Not yet anyway.  I know I have some value in this world but I still think that my value is at least in part a reflection of my skills, my actions, and my abilities.  I hope one day to know otherwise, to understand that this song is really the way things are.  I hope you will also.

I am one of those, at the table not invited, and to all you at the feast it’s very plain, I cannot hide in etiquette or conversation, Christ himself sent word to me and so I came.

I am one of those who was dead and fully buried, and I still bear every stigma of decay, there is no way I can hide just what I’ve been through, ’cause when Jesus called I came fresh from the grave.

Though the world may number me among the foolish, I think Jesus Christ is all I need to know, Jesus suffered and paid blood to buy the lowest of the low, Hallelujah! Amen! That’s me! Yes, I am one of those!

I am one of those, who was a leper and contagious, the deformities and scars I have today, yet while I was vile with sickness Jesus loved me, and He healed, restored and through and through remade.

Though the world may number me among the foolish, I think Jesus Christ is all I need to know, Jesus suffered and paid blood to buy the lowest of the low, Hallelujah! Amen! That’s me! Yes, I am one of those!

I am one of those who was doomed to death in prison, and I’ve done more evil things than I could say, but Jesus broke inside and there unlocked my shackles, and to set me free, he died and took my place.

Though the world may number me among the foolish, I think Jesus Christ is all I need to know, Jesus suffered and paid blood to buy the lowest of the low, Hallelujah! Amen! That’s me! Yes, I am one of those!

I am one of those, who is hard to love and ugly, self-righteous critical religion was my stain, so I ran to Christ to wash and be discovered, Jesus came to me and covered up my shame.

Though the world may number me among the foolish, I think Jesus Christ is all I need to know, Jesus suffered and paid blood to buy the lowest of the low, Hallelujah! Amen! That’s me! Yes, I am one of those!

I love you,

Dad
