Melodie Crittenden – With His Arms Wide Open Lyrics

With his arms wide open
He came gathering his fold. The weary and the destitute
Were the ones that he called friends. With his arms wide open
He bought our eternity. When his days on earth were through
He’d given all that he could give
And it’s no surprise that he died
The same way that he lived. With his arms wide open
That each lost sheep might be found,
From the youngest to the old
To the weak and wayward souls. With his arms wide open
He rescued you and me. From sinners filler with shame,
To the blind and the lame. When he talked about his kingdom,
It threw the Kings a curve,
‘Cause with all his father’s power,
He said he came to serve. First Chorus
With his arms wide open
He walked from town to town. Third Chorus
With his arms wide open
He hung there on a cross. No wonder he had prostitutes
and even lepers fall him. He turned the other cheek
When they nailed him to a tree. Second Chorus
Cause with his arms wide open
He welcomed one and all
With his arms wide open
He tore down every wall. Spent his whole life reaching out
to folks like you and me. To those believing in him
He offered faith, hope and love. There came a kind and gentle man
from a town called Galilee. With his arms wide open
He set this whole world free. With his arms wide open
He loved ’em all the same. With his arms wide open
That not one soul would be lost. He said his father sent him
Bearing gifts from up above.
