Apologetix – Hey Zacchaeus lyrics

Well, He was comin' down the road
Windin' through Jericho
They had everyone in town in line
Folks along the road
Made movement kind of slow
We wanted them to step aside
Make way for Jesus, make way for Jesus
Down in the crowd of all those people was Zaccheus*
Life was tough for this short man
He was despised because of sin
There was no place where he could stand
And look at Jesus
Well, now Zaccheus was short
So he climbed a sycamore tree
Just the right height to see
He could see the Lord
But he felt for sure
"Jesus wouldn't wanna look at me!
Could He save me? Am I crazy?
I've got a past that most people would say was shady
Would He choose to forgive my sins?
Or am I going out on a limb?"
Just then the Lord looked up at him
Said, "Hey, Zaccheus!"
So there was silence in the road
While He looked up and spoke
And the world was hanging' on the line
Jesus hollered up there, "Let's both go to supper
At your house tonight."
They said, "Jesus, don't be facetious
Don't hang around immoral people like Zaccheus!"
He said, "Baby, don't detain me!
I've gotta go, 'cause this sheep's lost
I'm gonna save him!"
Wooo Wooo Wooo Wooo (4X)
All you gotta see is... we all need saved by Jesus

Luke 19:3
He wanted to see who Jesus was, but being a short man he could not, because of the crowd.
