A Small Man Named Zaccheus

A Small Man Named Zaccheus
Words © 2016 by Mollie Pearce McKibbon
7 6 7 6
A small man was Zaccheus,
So small he couldn’t see,
Over all the throngs that came
To sit round Jesus’ knee.

Chorus
Climb down that tree, Zaccheus!
Climb down from that high view.
Lord Jesus Christ is coming;
The King of Kings loves you.

The Lord looked up and saw him,
The taxman in the tree,
And Jesus called to Zaccheus,
“Come down and eat with me.”

Chorus

Though others shunned Zaccheus
For all his cheating part.
Lord Jesus saw his suff’ring
And knew He’d change his heart.

Chorus

There’s no heart that can not change
Once Jesus is let in,
For Jesus knows our burdens
And cleans away our sin.

Chorus
