Samaritan's Heart
by Greater Vision

Album: Faces


one day a traveler journeyed down the road to Jericho
he was beaten by some thieves and left to die
teachers of religion and the law came near to where he lay
but the levi and the priest just past him by
he wondered if the God he served had a heart of stone
does he walk on by whenever we're in pain
all at once he saw a stranger reaching out with loving kindness
he healed his wounds and put him on the right way.

(Chorus:)
he didn't need the law that would teach him right from wrong and how he'd sinned
religion wouldn't help him mend the shattered broken pieces back again
he was hoping for one person who would open up their heart and take the time
lord, grant that i would show your light, that that samaritan's heart would be mine.

I too was like that stranger who walked down that road of sin
wounded by the thief and left to die
I tried religion and the law, but couldn't find my way
it seemed that help would always pass me by
would the choices that i made in life curse my soul forever
could God forgive me of my past mistakes
all at once i saw a nail scarred hand reach out with loving kindness
he healed my wounds and put me on the right way.

(Chorus #2:)
I didn't need the law that would teach me right from wrong and how I'd sinned
religion wouldn't help me mend the shattered broken pieces back again
I was hoping for one person who would open up their heart and take the time
just like that samaritan, Lord, i thank you that you did not pass me by.

(Bridge:)
there's a host of broken people lying by the dusty road
god's touch is what they're needing, it's up to us to lead them home.

(Chorus #3:)
cause they don't need the law that would teach them right from wrong and how they'd sinned
religion will not help them mend the shattered broken pieces back again
the just need one person who will open up their heart and take the time
lord, grant that i would show your light, that that samaritan's heart would be mine.

(Tag:)
Lord, grant that i would show your light, that that samaritan's heart would be mine.
