Favorite Lyric – “See now, I am the man that yelled out from the crowd for Your blood to be spilled on this earth shaking ground. Yes, then, I turned away with this smile on my face. With this sin in my heart tried to bury Your grace. And then alone in the night, I still called out for You so ashamed of my life, my life, my life. But You love me anyway. It’s like nothing in life that I’ve ever known. Yes You love me anyway. Oh Lord, how You love me.”


These are my favorite 14 songs by the Sidewalk Prophets. Can you identify yourself with the lyrics in “You Love Me Anyway”? Christ brought me to my knees in tears and remorse the first time I heard them. Our Savior is amazing! Long live the One, true King: Jesus Christ! God bless you all!
