It was said this man was of no reputation
Yet He could stop the rising storm
With a gesture of His hand
But He chose to use His hands to heal
Hearts of darkness, hearts of stone
Just like mine would be revealed

He was a man of no reputation
And by the wise, considered a fool
When He spoke about faith and forgiveness
In a time when the strongest arms ruled

But this man of no reputation
Loved the weak with relentless affection
And He loved all those poor in spirit just as they were
He was a man of no reputation

It was said this man brought only confusion
That He'd achieve His ends by any means
And the truth would bring revolution
And for once they were right the truth set us free
The hearts of the captive were His only concern
And the powerful knew their days were ending

Oh, He was a man of no reputation
And by the wise, considered a fool
When He spoke about faith and forgiveness
In a time when the strongest arms ruled

But this man of no reputation
Loved the weak with relentless affection
And He loved all those poor in spirit just as they were
He was a man of no reputation

One day soon the gates of Heaven will open wide
And the Prince of Peace will come back for His bride
But for now we live on these streets forbidding and tough
Where push always comes to shove and it's said love's never enough
Where a prophet in rags gives hope to a fearful world
No injustice, no heart of darkness will keep this voice from being heard

Oh, He was a man of no reputation
And by the wise, considered a fool
When He spoke about faith and forgiveness
In a time when the strongest arms ruled

But this man of no reputation
Loves us all with relentless affection
And He loves all those poor in spirit, come as you are
To the man of no reputation
