Track Name: Even the Dogs
Broken in the desert
Thirsty, with a child
You are the One who sees me

Twelve years didn’t fix me
I reached out and touched your coat
You are the One who heals me

Even the dogs get the crumbs from your table
I am not worthy to receive you at all
But say just the word and I shall find healing
in your blood, in your grace

Walking on the water
I watched the wind come up
You are the One who calls me

Once you told me who you were,
A stranger at the well
You are the One who drinks the cup with me (and...)

Even the dogs get the crumbs from your table
I am not worthy to receive you at all
But say just the word and I shall find healing
in your blood, in your grace
          
"Take up your mat and come to my table
Take up your cross and follow me.
Broken for you is my body,
and poured out is my blood,
my Father’s grace”
