You Welcomed Me

Tom Booth was inspired by his friends who were working to welcome persecuted Catholics around the world into the United States. Utilizing Matthew 25 and John 21 as his Scriptural sources, Tom composed this stirring ballad that challenges us to follow Christ by serving the poor, the forgotten, and the oppressed.

I was hungry, and you gave me
all that I was hungry for.
I was thirsty, and you gave me
all that I was thirsting for.
I was a stranger, and you welcomed me.

I was naked, and you clothed me
with mercy and dignity;
sick and broken, and you gave me
your time and your listening.
I was in prison and you came to me.

Feed my lambs, if you love me.
Tend my sheep, if you love me.
