You Are On Our Side

You sit at the table with the wounded and the poor
You laugh and share stories with the thief and the whore
When You could just be silent and leave us here to die
Still, You sent Your Son for us
You are on our side

These lyrics flood me with joy every time I listen to this song. That last line brings me to tears because it sounds too good to be true. But it is! It is the most truthful statement made in the history of the world. God is on our side!

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
-Romans 5:8
