Wrong-Eyed Jesus

Wrong-Eyed Jesus: simple face of forgiveness

Still child, remember your wickedness

 

Bleeding Alabama: crossroads of his life and ministry

Oh Lord Jesus, please deliver me

 

Homeless Charlie: friendliest disciple in Birmingham

As if love were deserved for every man

 

Parkbench Women: sun hat and petticoat statements of faith

As if there was something to celebrate

 

Turpentine blood: shed upon the cursed tree

Oh Lord Jesus, please deliver me

 

Wrong-Eyed Jesus: come down from that hungry man's cross

Before we blink and all is lost
