Zacchaeus was a very small man,
And he didn’t have many fans.
But he knew he wanted to meet the Lord,
And see what He had in store.
He tried to see but the crowds were tall,
And he was far too small.
The only way was to climb a tree,
And hope that he could see.
When Jesus passed by that small tree
He said, “Zacchaeus come down to me.”
I’m coming today to your house for tea
And set your lonely life free.
The people groaned, didn’t understand–
Why go have tea with this lonely man?
For he was the who took their cash,
And homeward he would dash.
That day he changed from bad to good.
The temptation he withstood.
Today his story can change people’s lives,
All children, men and wives.
Jesus can change our hearts.
And give us all a brand new start.
“When Jesus got to the tree, he looked up and said, ‘Zacchaeus, hurry down. Today is my day to be a guest in your home.’ “ (Luke 19:5)
