lyrics

This is just a simple tune
It’s writing long past due
You’ll recognize in a moment
If it’s written about you

Those picked last for basketball
Will sense the essence here
If you’ve ever been let down
Or know unrelenting fear
This song’s for you
This song’s for you

There are those who’d love to dance
The steps can’t be that hard a task
Swept away by that sweet moment
If only someone would ask

This song’s for dreamers who gave up
And no longer steer by stars
For the outsiders and the misfits
Who came from Jupiter and Mars
This song’s for you
This song’s for you

I think we’ll all be Magdalenas
From the last to the first in line
As we gather for the supper
When we drink His wine
I think we’ll gaze in silent rapture
While He says, “Well done”
That the likes of us will be there
By grace alone

This song’s for those who can’t conform
Who have a different bottom line
Free spirits outside the box
Who left their masterpieces unsigned

Those with thorns in the flesh
But who believe without a doubt
And those of faith with such depression
That they're barely holding out
This song’s for you
This song’s for you

I think we’ll all be Magdalenas
From the last to the first in line
Well as we gather for the supper
When we drink His wine
And I think we’ll gaze in silent rapture
While He says, “Well done”
That the likes of us will be there
By grace alone

For the ones who suffocate
From rituals and rules
And those who learned early on
They weren’t considered beautiful

To the unsung who rarely speak
Yet have the gift of listening
For the homeless who walk slowly
And may not see another spring
This song’s for you
Now this song’s for you

I think we’ll all be Magdalenas
From the last to the least in line
As we gather for the supper
When we drink His wine
Well I think we’ll gaze in silent rapture
While He gently says, “Well done”
That the likes of us will be there
By grace alone

That the likes of us will be there
By grace alone

That the likes of us will be there
By grace alone.
