Sinners Welcome Here
Demo: Kevin Wicker, Progress Nashville

Chorus
Don’t be afraid to come on in
We don’t care about your sin
Jesus really loves you
There’s nothing new to Him
He’ll welcome you with open arms
We’ll all stand up and cheer
Another soul is coming home
Sinners welcome here

It was just a little country church
At the end of the road
I was looking for a place to land
From such a heavy load
A sign out front caught my eye
And eased me of my fears
All it said was just three words
Sinners welcome here

Don’t be afraid to come on in
We don’t care about your sin
Jesus really loves you
There’s nothing new to Him
He’ll welcome you with open arms
We’ll all stand up and cheer
Another soul is coming home
Sinners welcome here

Heaven ain’t just for the saints
There’s room for everyone
There is a family reunion
With the Father and the Son
Just have a little talk with Jesus
He knows that you're sincere
There’s always room for just one more
Sinners welcome here

Don’t be afraid to come on in
We don’t care about your sin
Jesus really loves you
There’s nothing new to Him
He’ll welcome you with open arms
We’ll all stand up and cheer
Another soul is coming home
Sinners welcome here

Bridge
Well Glory, Hallelujah
I never thought I’d see
The day when I walked down the aisle
Falling to my knees

Don’t be afraid to come on in
We don’t care about your sin
You know that Jesus really, really loves you
He’ll welcome you with open arms
We’ll all stand up and cheer
Another soul is coming home
Sinners welcome here

Yeah, Heaven ain't just for the saints
Sinners welcome here

 Wow! Roy, Kevin outdid himself on this one, and I've commented on the lyrics before but hearing it this way drives them home and it's a great message.  I could hear any of the major Gospel artists doing this... it would be great as a solo, or for a quartet and I'd love to see it happen!

Thanks Dennis.  Yeah, Kevin really got into this one.  I asked him if he could do country gospel and he replied, "I cut my teeth on it."  lol.  I'm proud of the job he did on this.  Thanks for the listen and comment.

You and Kevin got it going on Roy. That is one really good song right there. Kevin is such a fit for this type of music. It does sound like he's been doing it since he was a baby.

Fantastic!

Roy heard this one over at Jamwave... like what I heard. Kevin does an amazing job. I don't how he comes up with all those melodies.

Thanks Curtis, Troy and Rob.  Rob, when I first contacted him he said he can write melodies in his sleep.  I think I believe him. lol.
