Gord Lang - The Stranger Lyrics

Broken and bleeding and left there to die
Stripped of all dignity - wounded I lie
A site to the curious - a pity to see
Some even passing their judgment on me
They see that Iím needing their help but they donít even try

Along comes a Stranger whoís passing my way
He seems to know all thatís happened today
I donít have to ask He knows just what I need
Skillfully cleansing my wounds as they bleed
The love that He shows Ė tells me more than words ever could say

He finds me a place where He says I can rest
Always beside me - I know that Iím blessed
Whatever Iím needing the price has been paid
Now and forever the sacrifice made
Thereís hope for the weary and liberty for the oppressed

If youíve been abandoned and left by lifeís road
A victim of chance or the seeds that youíve sowed
I bring you Good News of a Stranger thatís near
Speaking the Word that youíre longing to hear
ďJust give Me your burdens Ė allow Me to carry your loadĒ

Heíll never forsake you or leave you alone
Heís still got a purpose for you as His own
No matter what happens His promise is true
Nothingís as certain as His love for you
His tender compassion is deeper than youíve ever known
