Least of These | Matt Maher

I’ve been listening – a lot – to this great new release from Matt Maher.  Many of the songs from this album were written during a difficult time in Maher’s life – the passing of his father.  Jesus told us to take care of the least of these.  Maher takes these words and reminded that Jesus came for the least of these – meaning us.  This is a powerful and moving song.

Matt Maher / John Tibbs

I’m a stranger in a foreign land
Passing through, when will I be home again?
You remind me, nothing here is permanent
But Your word and Your faithfulness

I was hungry, I was thirsty
I was weary, You let me in

When love became a refugee, He became my refuge
When love became a prisoner, He set me free
The widow and the orphan became the bride and children
When He stole my heart between two thieves
That’s when love became the
Least of these

I’m a beggar on the pilgrim’s road
Chasing echoes of a voice I hear among the poor
I’m a stranger in a foreign land
Oh the memories of the love that calls the broken things to mend

When love became a refugee, He became my refuge
When love became a prisoner, He set me free
The widow and the orphan became the bride and children
When He stole my heart between two thieves
That’s when love became the
Least of these
