() - Optional chord not played in original but work if your playing acoustic.
Capo 3 chords... for original take it down 3 steps..

Intro - G
G                              (C9)            (G)
Jesus Friend of sinners we have strayed so far away
(C9)                                                 (G)    Em    D
We cut down people in your name but the sword was never ours to swing
G                                     C9               G
Jesus friend of sinners the truth's become so hard to see
C9                        G              Em               D
The world is on their way to You but they're tripping over me
C9                        G                    D
Always looking around but never looking up I'm so double minded
C9                                        G         D
A plank eyed saint with dirty hands and a heart divided

G                    C9 - D
Oh Jesus friend of sinners
Em                     D                                C9
Open our eyes to the world at the end of our pointing fingers
G                       C9  - D
Let our hearts be led by mercy
Em                            D        C
Help us reach with open hearts and open 
Am                                  C9
Oh Jesus friend of sinners break our hearts for what breaks yours
(Em  C9   G    D) – Instrumental 
G                            C9           G
Jesus friend of sinners the one who's writing in the sand
C9                  G                  Em                    D
Make the righteous turn away and the stones fall from their hands
G                                    C9          G
Help us to remember we are all the least of thieves
C9                G                  Em                    D
Let the memory of Your mercy bring your people to their knees
C9                                                        G  -  D
Nobody knows what we're for only what we're against when we  judge the wounded
C9                                                                  G - D
What if we put down our signs crossed over the lines and love like you did
-Chorus  x1 -
Bridge 1 -
Am                                            C
You love every lost cause; you reach for the outcast
G                                               D
For the leper and the lame; they're the reason that You came
Am                                        C
Lord I was that lost cause and I was the outcast
G                                              D
But you died for sinners just like me a grateful leper at Your feet
Bridge 2--
G            G                       C9            D
You are good, You are good And Your love endures forever   x4

-Chorus x1- 
G                                            C9 - D
And I was the lost cause and I was the outcast
Em -  DC9
Yeah(hold note)
G             C9                    D
You died for sinners just like me, a grateful leper at Your feet

Really good. Only correction is in the Bridge and in the Tag (which you call Bridge 2). It should be an 'F' instead of a 'D' on "the reason that you came" in the bridge. And the chords in 'BRIDGE 2' are C, G, D, Em (3x) and the last time is C, G, D, C.

"Capo 3 chords... for original take it down 3 steps.." ???
---doing this would put this song in the key of Eb, however taking it up 3 1/2 steps would put this song in the proper key, which is Bb.

I want to post or [tab]
